  • Data to design workplaces part two: four practical considerations

    So you’re looking to design a flexible space to suit a hybrid workforce model. But where to begin?  Adapting the design of a space to suit your needs isn’t a one-time, all-or-nothing endeavour. As needs change, workplaces can evolve. For now though, we need a starting point for getting employees back into the building after a very long hiatus for many. Susan Chang, Principal, Regional Leader of Consulting at HOK says that most of their clients are planning a phased return. “Companies are generally returning at a 25-30 percent capacity to start,” she says. “Nobody has an appetite to make huge changes right away without knowing what’s to come.” Clearly, renovating a space is expensive – and yet, it’s imperative to welcome employees back into a hybrid space and structure that puts their safety and emotional needs first.

    Figuring out who comes back to the office, and when, is only one part of the journey back to the office.

  • Top 5 trends: office experience disruption

    Managing disruption, maintaining productivity, and encouraging empathy were top themes last year as the world's office towers emptied and employees moved to a work-from-home model. Leaders watched the pandemic for signals that we could return to the office as they recognized fatigue in their employees and decline in productivity. The news of the vaccine gives us a glimmer of hope, and means we can now start creating the workplace of the future. So what does that look like, when will it happen, and what will it take to get there? We predict these top 5 trends for 2021 with innovation, distributed working, and workplace leadership major themes for the year.   1. The return to the office will begin Our clients have shared a consistent and strong message: offices will reopen. The reasons? Productivity, culture and retention. Work from home was attractive prior to the pandemic in a flex-work model, but now that many have experienced it full-time, the realization that an all-and-nothing strategy isn’t favourable. Zoom calls dominate the day with actual work happening around them. Colleague relationships suffer with lack of natural exchanges. And with nearly everyone having a similar experience, company’s struggle to differentiate beyond salary in meaningful ways. The office is more than a destination, it plays a significant role in the company experience, culture, values, and services. The desire to return is near-universal.

  • The bite-sized process that helps businesses achieve ‘digital transformation’

    It’s not long since “digital transformation” first became a business buzzword. In the 90s and 00s, the concept spoke to the opportunity to digitize an organization, to shift from manual input, to bring a business online, to deploy the latest e-solutions. Digital transformations often moved entire industries into the digital era; Uber forced taxi companies into apps,  Amazon led to online stores, and shipping being a defacto standard for businesses large and small. Banks raced to catch up with each other to provide mobile banking solutions after the advent of online-only banks like Tangerine.

  • Contact Tracing: Building Smarter Cities

    COVID-19 has thrust health-care workers to the front lines, caused personal tragedy, and redefined what jobs are “essential.” Economically it has imperiled industries, triggered layoffs, and all-but-stopped life within office complexes, malls, stadiums, and urban hubs.  Now, governments face the question of how to lift their finger off the pause button. Any strategy to do so will long predate any vaccine – and its main measure of success will be how it enables officials to track COVID-19 infections and contain the pandemic. It is imperative that these strategies come far sooner than when someone arrives in the ER, or receives a test.
