Out-of-the-box office design ideas are becoming more and more prevalent to suit the evolving needs of companies and their employees. One of those that’s been gaining traction is the so-called flexible workspace.
The concept of flexible workspace was originally intended to make collaboration between teams easier. In this kind of environment, work barriers are kept to a minimum with a lot of open spaces replacing the traditional cubicle-style workstations. As a result, people feel a sense of belonging as they have more opportunities to interact with others at every level.
Flexible office spaces also answer the need for employers to pay attention to the physical comfort of their employees while they’re at work. This is possible in a flexible workspace since the work areas are quite spacious with a wide range of modern facilities and amenities and employees even have access to rest and recreation rooms.
Meanwhile, from the perspective of business organizations, a flexible workspace gives the office a unique personality without the company having to spend so much on renovating or redesigning the office space. It only takes vision and creativity to transform even the most boring office into a flexible workspace, as what the accompanying infographic shows.
