Flexible, hybrid and agile working office designs are more than their namesakes and boldly allow for innovative ways to design office set ups that efficiently utilise space, drive performance with flow and can even benefit your business operating costs.
But which one suits your business and brand and do you even need to choose one over another?
Let’s evaluate the meaning of each one and what that means to you when you’re contemplating your own preferred office design within your business that reflects the working style of your workforce and benefits your culture as a whole.
Perfectly equipped agile working can create flow between working zones and areas built to promote team work and group meetings as well as to serve diverse and preferred working styles of individuals within the workforce.
Agile working can be styled to match your brand and business as it stands today and as it evolves. The questions you’ll need to ask yourself surrounding your current business workplace design is;
- Does it suit how you function on a daily basis?
- Does it lend itself to growth and the evolution of your business?
- Can your employees come in and hit the ground running so they can be productive and within an easy environment that offers a space for them to do so?
- Would you be comfortable welcoming guests in?
- Can you attract and retain the expectations of today’s talent when you’re recruiting for your business?
- Does it match your business need and that of the flow of how your business cohesively needs to work together?
Answering questions such as these above can assist in identifying where design gaps may well be within your workspace and the impact of this directly upon your business and its day to day functioning.
