Gone are the days when workplaces could go unchanged and expect to serve whomever worked in them. Instead they must be designed with liquid workforces in mind – they need to be able to move with them, change with them and develop alongside them.
The future of dynamic organisations and shared facilities means both flexibility and affordability for companies, something not offered at the same scale in traditional set-ups. Remove the physical divisions and you encourage the sharing of best practice, ideas and even camaraderie between colleagues and people who work at different organisations.
What surrounds us shapes and influences what we do and how well we do it. We need to create spaces that can evolve alongside businesses – places that connect and inspire people and are capable of keeping up with rapid change – only then we will create spaces fit for organisations of tomorrow, whatever they
may look like.
