Flexible working is a trend that’s not going away. And as the modern workplace evolves to accommodate this we’re seeing a shift in working patterns. How has this evolution taken place and what does it mean for the future?
Workplace customs and trends have shifted over the years. The typical workspace as we knew it 10 years ago appears different from what companies offer today. Businesses are acknowledging the changes and seeing the advantages of adopting a modern office setting.
The evolution of the way people work demands for new workplace practices. As technology continues to take over and affect how employees work, the need for a flexible workspace also rises. This type of work setting boasts multifunctional rooms, open spaces, individual work stations, and flexibility for those who work freelance or telecommute.
It’s incredible to think that this was such an unfamiliar model years ago. Today, co-working spaces seem far from going out of trend, especially considering how they help both businesses and the working population.
As the gig economy blooms, it’s safe to say that shared offices are here to stay. Below is an infographic that illustrates the history and developments of the flexible workspace industry.
