The Future of Office Spaces: Global Statistics and Trends
Posted on February 22, 2017 by Franco Alvarez
As work culture transforms, so does office spaces. New practices are introduced and utilized by the entire workforce—from employees to the top management such as freelancing, virtual offices, and coworking office spaces, and have brought forth improvements in terms of work quality, productivity, and work-life balance.
If you look at the numbers, the changing offices have revolutionized the economy for greater good. For instance, telecommuting has been on the rise for a while now as more employees opt to work from home. According to a Gallup study, 37% of employees worked remotely at one point in 2015. The convergence of technology and internet played a huge role in creating an office space that matters for all types of workers.
Shared office space locations is a growing trend as well. The idea of a communal space for all types of employees are a welcomed change from the usual office setup. In fact, a study by Statista showed that 7,800 co-working spaces were established in 2015, and is expected to increase to 37,000 by 2018.
As work culture moves forward, office spaces will continue to adapt with the modern times to match employees’ changing demands globally.
