Office Space Will be Flexible by 2030

The Covid-19 pandemic has questioned the way we work and it is set to have a lasting effect on the functioning of the workplace. It has also led to today’s buzz word – remote working. 


Several studies conducted questioned workers about their work preferences and It has been found that employees still desire to work from home at least two times a week however the working environment still matters! 

With the introduction of technology, work has become more catered to employees’ needs and their working styles. Technology has further transformed offices into spaces that demand serious adaptation from their employees. 

There have been significant changes in management and productivity styles and procedures in just the past ten years and these changes are reflected in today’s workplace as we know it. Offices have made a shift to coworking, remote working (digital), and hot desking.

The workplace has slowly been progressing towards flexibility and comfort as it moves towards becoming more engaging with fewer desks and more collaboration between team members. 

In the coming years, the outdated ways of working will likely cease to exist and offices consisting of cubicles and senior executive suites will lose their relevance. The workplace is moving to a place of pliability, where the focus will be on employees’ needs, creativity and innovation. It will be a dynamic entity that is fluid and not limited to physical boundaries. 

Flexible Office Space 

It has been said that by the year 2030, the workplace will include workable hours. The emphasis will be on selflessness and transformation. It will be matched per the personnel needs as a place of mood adaptation. An area of purposefulness where the future of work includes creating spaces set to serve a particular purpose. 

Contrary to popular belief, the physical workplace will not be eliminated, human interaction will always prevail. The workplace will remain as a home that is human-centric and changeable.  A space for teams to gather and share ideas, values and culture. They are set to be hubs of innovation and where new ideas are born. 

The workplace is heading to being human centred, focused on employees’ need and easily adaptable to the business needs. The focus will be on the employee and keeping personnel happy and productive. This is seen through an introduction of measures such as standing desks and comfortable seating. 

What is a Flexible Office Space?

Referred to as “flexispaces,” flexible office spaces are dynamic future spaces. They encourage adaptability. They have a traditional office layout whilst fully functional but with minimal setup time and zero setup costs, hassle and stress. They are transformable to fit the users’ needs at any time. Flexispaces are set up in a way that they can brace their users as their tasks and viewpoints change. These spaces encourage creativity and innovation and the users leave these spaces as problem solvers. 

They enforce diversity – one area can become a presentation room, a working space, a project planning room, and a boardroom at different times. Space can take multiple forms at separate times, depending on your needs and conforming to what is needed at a particular time. They can host a variety of people and brands. Flexible workspaces are innovative spaces for networking.
