Navigating workplace transformation: Past, present and future perspectives

The mailroom was never going to disappear, but we now know that professions and ways of working can be transient.

Workplaces evolve over time due to significant events driven by technological, economic, and societal changes. These events are leading to a widespread shift in working practices known as workplace transformation, with a notable example being the rise of modern-day remote work. Drawing on insights from past transformations, an upcoming shift in ways of working is suggested. This provides management with opportunities to implement innovative work practices and anticipate their impact on corporate housing and operations.

Hybrid working as ‘the worst of both worlds’

Many organizations are caught between two worlds: that of working in the office and remotely

Unsure to choose or simply because they need more transformation time. Knowing how much hybrid working puts the organization at a disadvantage in the long term is an eye opener. Understanding the transience of being stuck in the middle is a first step forward.

Housing strategy is not about workplaces

The tradition of offering employees a physical place to work (together) largely determined previous housing choices.

The location of the office(s) is often a given from the past. In an era, we used to work (almost) fulltime in our offices while employees were willing to travel daily to the office to be present. Over time, we have learned that employees increasingly view the workplace as a condition of employment rather than as a given circumstance.

 

Labor market conditions, individualism, digitizing of work, polarization and more societal developments changed the way employees perceive their workplace. They impose demands on travel time, a fit to culture and added value of the work environment to their own development and work processes. While current housing strategies are mostly about productivity and creating economic value. Everything else – whether it is vitality, job satisfaction, sustainability, or identity – is a derivative. Shouldn't we consider the working environment as one of the most important secondary employment conditions?

New ways of working and their impact
on the real estate market

Now that 1 in 3 employees worldwide wants to work from home full-time and 1 in 8 in the office full-time, the commercial real estate market is now experiencing the consequences of vacancy and falling demand

The private market will follow suit. The future of offices has never been such a challenging theme, which goes much further than making offices attractive. Understanding the nature of companies provides starting points in this regard.

Remote and fractional work as a solution
to solving the people puzzle

We are living in unprecedented times fueled by an increasing scarcity in labor and unimaginable technological innovations.

With the awareness that we must redesign the way we organize work and the lessons learned from working from home during the pandemic, remote and fractional work seem to offer a logic scenario for the future. A great opportunity to solving the People Puzzle!

 

Digital work and the use of online talent platforms offers opportunities to leverage talent, allowing employers to broaden their talent pools and making better use of hidden potential. But how does this impact areas like management, work arrangements, employee engagement and collaboration and culture? Let’s explore and shape the organization of the future together!

Speaker: Diana Russo - LinkedIn

The digital revolution and the future of work

Technology has now permanently changed our work. We started working remotely, among other things.

This also includes digital etiquette to ensure that everything runs smoothly. And yet despite all that technology, we have become little more productive in recent years. For example, we use email and the smartphone in a stupid way. How technology will change work even further is explained by means of an AI experiment. This immediately makes clear the impact of AI on the labor market. “AI is currently mainly used to automate jobs. However, economists from Stanford University and MIT argue in favor of using AI to expand the possibilities of human effort.”

Working in the metaverse

Metaverse, as persistent and immersive digital spaces, enable the development, distribution, and consumption of digital artefacts.

Tens of billions of euros in transactions have already been carried out. Developments are accelerating and lifelike virtual collaboration will soon become a possibility with numerous applications in office work, education, healthcare, tourism, transport, retail, and marketing. Find out the latest state of affairs and what companies are capable of now and in the future.

Realizing the full potential of open innovation in the digital age

Open innovation is crucial for organizations to stay competitive and succeed in today's fast-paced, connected business world.

By embracing open innovation, organizations can tap into the creativity of both internal and external stakeholders to achieve sustainable growth and success. Traditionally, the physical environment plays a key role in fostering trust, creativity, collaboration, and experimentation. The High Tech Campus Eindhoven is a great example of this.

In today's digital age, many organizations are shifting to hybrid, fully remote, or metaverse working. This creates challenges for open innovation, like fewer spontaneous interactions, trust issues, and data security concerns. How can organizations handle these challenges, and what impact will it have on their competitive advantage?
