In today’s post-pandemic world, having a flexible work model is hardly a differentiator for businesses anymore — it’s become pretty commonplace. In fact, 71% of employees want a hybrid or remote working style after the pandemic (Owl Labs). So for companies recruiting for in-office positions, what will you do to make employees actually want to come to the office?
Now more than ever, your office environment matters. The best talent isn’t going to settle for being stuck in a dull, uninspiring office for 8 hours a day. And the truth is, there are major benefits to being in the office. Being together and socializing is a psychological needs that a lot of people are missing while working remotely. So providing people-centric spaces is an excellent way to foster growth and unity, encourage collaboration and connection, and satisfy the needs of workers — both physically and mentally.
Welcome your workers back to the traditional office space with common areas built for them! While many workers have gotten used to the comforts of home and gotten a bit agoraphobic in the process, you can create a space that gets them excited about coming to work and being part of a present team.
YOUR FINAL SPACE
When all is said and done, your common areas should be a rejuvenating force in your office and a huge recruiting tool for your company.
