Times and employee needs are changing, and office space needs to too
Telecommuting is alive and well, flexi-work and workers are increasing, and some employees now prefer working solo vs open-plan collaboration at the old office digs. Finances have changed. Needs (and priorities) have changed. And that often necessitates a physical downsize which not only saves on rent each month but also provides enhanced flexibility for both staff and business owners. KPMG CEO Paul Knopp told CNN Business companies are “focused on reducing real estate footprints” now and into the future. A different Paul – Paul Howells, CEO of Accumulate Capital – thinks along the same lines: “The days when a company would own or rent an office with a desk in it for each and every member of staff are coming to an end.”
Spending top dollar on prized office space, large corridors and that corner office no longer makes the sense it used to. Times are a-changin’ and to adapt it may well be time businesses start thinking small.
