Flexibility and Hybrid Working: The post-pandemic workplace

As government restrictions ease and we start to find a ‘new normal’ in the post-pandemic world, there’s a lot of talk about what the future looks like for the workplace. BACHMANN’s smart platform, iotspot, has been designed to make this transition easier.

As government restrictions ease and we start to find a ‘new normal’ in the post-pandemic world, there’s a lot of talk about what the future looks like for the workplace.

With many of us forced to work from home for an extended period of time, there is a mixture of both excitement and hesitation to return to the office. However, according to a recent report by the BCFA, only 15% of people now want to work from home full time. This is corroborated by Spacelab_’s Future of Work survey, which goes further to say that 73% of people now want to work from home 2 or more days a week.

The BCFA concludes that employee efficiency, engagement and performance rise when they have choice and control over how, when and where they work; paving the way for a new approach to how we use and interact with the spaces we use. In their webinar, The Workplace: Is the Pandemic a Catalyst for Change or Simply Accelerating the Inevitable? Spacelab_’s Creative Director Kara Carter explains the workplace is changing to become more of a collaboration hub, agreeing that for returning businesses, ‘staggered desk allocation is ideal.’

Products such as BACHMANN’s iotspot DESK2 (recently announced as a Mixology Awards 2021 finalist), have been designed to make this post-Covid transition easier. The power and data unit offers an integrated management tool, working alongside an app to allow employees to view and book workstations in just a few taps.

For businesses, iotspot DESK2 provides a host of GDPR-compliant user data, helping you adapt spaces and allocate resources according to how they are being used. This means the workspace can be easily adjusted and made more agile for the transition back to normality.
