Increased flexibility in the workspace requires new solutions to support your team’s desire for untethered spaces.
As employers begin to consider alternative workplace solutions to the traditional cubicle, focus has turned to increasing fluidity as a way of attracting and retaining employees. Research has shown that as the workforce becomes more populated with Millennials and Gen-Zers, flexibility in their workspace is a top concern when considering employment. Allowing employees the freedom to choose their workspace has proven to not only boost morale but increase overall engagement.
Employers must give employees the support they need to become untethered. Spaces should be created throughout the workspace that they want to work in. These spaces should be set up for success by integrating mobile work tools that employees can interact within both a collaborative and singular fashion.
The success of untethered workflow is defined by a high level of communication, especially if productivity is expected to happen outside of the office. Mobile technology brings the collaboration of the conference room into any environment. Stand-alone units such as CLUBtalk integrate furniture with technology, supporting both planned and on the fly meetings.
Mobile task boards or marker boards also offer flexibility in collaboration spaces. Grouped together, the boards can create collaborative spaces to meet or a quiet place to engage in heads-down work. Task and marker boards are slender, lightweight and easily positioned and transported throughout the workspace.
Stand-alone storage accessories can be used to give remote or part-time employees a place to store their items. These employees may not have a personal workstation, so having a compact space to call their own will provide a sense of place in the workspace. Storage units like the TN Storage & Accessories encourage employees to mix and match the storage accessories to fit their needs.
