Workspace Management Solutions for the Future
Over the last few years, workspace management solutions have become a very important part of our business. We have invested a lot of time in researching “workspace management and what will the Office of the future look like”. What is becoming abundantly clear is, the organizations that are hiring young talented employees (millennials), they are realizing that in order to retain them, they need to offer work environments which are leading edge and have in-place flexible workspace management solutions to accommodate their new employee’s needs.
I read an interesting article published by the Harvard Business Review about “Workspaces that Move People”. The article relates to these changes occurring in the workspace management marketplace and states that businesses will need to build offices which are “ really designed to spark not just collaboration but that innovation you see when people collide”. For example, it talks about collaboration and meeting colleagues in the hallway or at the coffee machine and discuss and share new ideas and this leads to improved performance. Additionally, they say the traditional cubicle is being replaced with open concept areas, “Quads, hotel space, couches, rotating desk assignments, standing desks, treadmill desks”. With businesses investing in these forms of technologies, their employees will collaborate more, resulting in improved employee productivity and performance and the organization will gain a competitive advantage by doing so.
Our organization is realizing a direct impact from these changes with significant interest in our on-demand booking of conference rooms, hotdesks and hoteling solutions. Organizations wish to deploy these workspace management technologies because they offer their employees easy and quick access to workspaces for day to day work activities and the ability to quick book meeting rooms so they can meet and share ideas together more efficiently.
