With so many companies formalising their hybrid working strategy, thoughts turn to how offices should be used. A lot of pressure is put on the office, as a centre for connection and collaboration, to reinforce company culture or act as a social and meeting hub.
There are several things to consider when thinking about the purpose of your office.
- What type of work do people do and what types of workspace do they need to do their work
- What is your headcount growth for the next few years
- Informed by your hybrid working strategy who needs to come to the office and how frequently
It’s also important to understand how many people are coming in currently and what workspaces they are using when they come in.
Once you understand who needs to come to the office, to do what. You can then start to plan the location and size of the office space you need.
At Inclusive Cultures we can help you refine your hybrid working strategy and understand what the purpose of your office is.
