DESIGN DOES MATTER, in the blended workplace and all living spaces. The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report October 2020 describes the acceleration of the Future of Work. The research quantifies the benefits of a well-designed workplace, which contributes positively to financial margins. Inspiring and collecting innovation within the new right-sized organization is leading to industry disruption and market advantage. A highly competitive global marketplace demands research and data driven solutions, supplying the brief for organizational change. The research reports that 84% of employers are set to rapidly digitize work processes, including significant expansion of remote work. About 33% of all employers, to address concerns about productivity and well-being, expect to redesign the corporate office to create a sense of community. These steps not only capture your brand and culture but offer another springboard for face-to-face periods of collaboration and spontaneous moments. Evidence exists to support, and employees are demanding a flexible work life in better balance. 2021 workplaces are being created with a larger percentage of meeting spaces and flex space, integrating the sciences of human health and wellness (WELL). Responding to the rapid change, some technology businesses prefer hybrid solutions and others are opting for prototypical solutions. Distributed hub locations, regional to associates home locations, are being adopted by larger previously centralized organizations.
