That we have done! My team from MERZ INNEN.ARCHITEKTUR and I have thought a lot about new work concepts. We have conducted background talks and studied surveys. The result: New Work remains highly relevant. Focus on flexible changes.
What can we learn from the present situation in order to apply it in the future in a modified form and on the pulse of time?
There will be more desk sharing, more demand for activity-based work. What is also new is a greater involvement of HR departments in the workplace design of the future. The home office has been upgraded. According to surveys, 80% of employees can imagine continuing to work from home or other places for a day or two. This offers employees flexibility, but also a need to quickly feel part of the team again on days of presence in the office. It should feel like an arrival, a feeling of well-being. We think the identity of the employer will play an even greater role with corporate architecture.
