For this first release of the year, with the assistance of WORKTECH Academy insights gathered, we have turned to ten experts in their network – academics, designers, architects, developers, scientists and journalists – for their insights on the conditions shaping up the workspace and our working environment in general. All were speakers at WORKTECH webinars or virtual conferences last year, as their live event programme pivoted in the pandemic onto digital platforms. Coupled with this, we also take a look at insights from some of the WORKTECH Academy’s leading Global Partners, a group Condeco are a valued member of; insights that as we look at the year ahead, we are cautiously stepping into it.
An overview of all the trends we discuss in your workspace this year:
A post-COVID approach
“Companies should seize the current opportunity to experiment with flexible time as well as flexible space.” ~ Professor Lynda Gratton, A British organizational theorist, consultant, and Professor of Management Practice at London Business School.
The post Covid-19 workplace requires a significant shift in mindset, both in terms of how we work and what the physical office means to us.
The events of 2020 and now into the start of 2021, have opened the door to an age of experiment in working practices; now being the time to explore increased flexibility options for teams to collaborate and be as productive as they can as we start to reopen workspaces.
This is where the acceleration of technology and workspace strategies will need to be taken into account; a well-planned technology strategy can support the transition to a more flexible work pattern as employees start to enter this next phase of 2021.
