Top 5 workspace trends for 2021
Today, we see a seismic shift in the world of work. While remote working became a temporary norm for many organisations during the pandemic, plenty have recognised the merits of this enforced flexibility. Now, the choice is to voluntarily accept the change. At the forefront of this wave, JustCo has enabled corporations to scale with private suites and coworking spaces. In Korea, increasing number of queries for flexible solutions like hot desking indicate that enterprises want to draw on the benefits of contemporary workspaces by adopting a more cost-effective real estate solution – the ‘core-and-flex’ model. On top of reducing operational expenditures, it fosters a sense of independence and autonomy among employees who have the freedom to choose where they wish to work. Over at Tokyo, for instance, hot desks at smaller coworking spaces have become popular where employees work without the supervision of a manager. While employees have shown preferences for greater flexibility, it can only be achieved when employers accept workplace changes. When set against the backdrop of impending uncertainties, this discourse becomes more pertinent, which renders the need for enterprises to strategise for cost-effectiveness. We see how this plays out for the near future as we study in detail the top workspace trends to anticipate in 2021.
