Post the covid-19 pandemic, hybrid working has become a popular model of working supporting the needs of employees transitioning back into the workplace full time. However, it is likely to continue long after covid-19 meaning the traditional office must change into a hybrid working office.
The way employees use the office has massively changed. Working from home showed how, for solo tasks where concentration is required, it was a much more preferable option, but for problem-solving and innovative tasks, the office and the community at the office was greatly missed. As a result, post pandemic, the office took on a new role as a place to provide community, collaboration, sociability and innovation for employees.
