The key for creating the workplace of the future is to view employees as unique individuals with specific needs rather than as generalised ‘workers’ while keeping empathy at the forefront.
A recent study from Godrej Interio revealed that 84% of the workforce expect a good work-life balance from their jobs. Essentially, the workplace of the future must address public health requirements, individual employee needs, and deliver economic value to businesses through adaptive ways of engaging with their ecosystems.
With things getting back to normal and office spaces operating in full strength under hybrid mode, it has become essential for business owners to redesign their office spaces as the ‘post-pandemic lifestyle’ themes.
One of the new trends while designing office spaces is adding a lot of foliage which gives freshness, positivity, and vibrancy to the workspace.
