Hubs, activity based working, the agile office, hybrid working, work style optimisation and collaborative environments, are just a few of the buzz words that have come to the fore recently, and particularly since the pandemic. As we return to the office and the "New Normal" unfolds, businesses now have a unique opportunity to create workspaces which are more effective than ever before. Workspaces that truly enhance productivity and genuinely contribute to attracting and retaining staff.
So what does hybrid working look like in practical terms?
Imagine you’re a client manager who works for a consultancy. Your company have recently implemented a hybrid working model and relocated their city centre headquarters. It’s Tuesday, one of the two days a week you’ve allocated to spend in the office. You’ve got a busy day ahead!
