Workplace Trends You Need to Know
What’s new for your workplace in 2016? Workplace trends that could affect you include the need to create a mobile culture and embrace the alternative workplace. This is all based on research conducted by Planon, the global leader in Integrated Workplace Management Systems (IWMS).
Planon found that work today is being done everywhere and requires some major flexibility. Organizations that can become creative and flexible will attract the top talent and increase productivity.
Even Facebook recently introduced an open office with no walls inside an entire building engineered to facilitate a new way of doing work. Other major Silicon Valley firms such as Apple and Google are planning futuristic workplaces, too. If employees need to hold a private meeting, they can grab a small conference room when the need arises. This new design is expected to encourage collaboration and speed of communication and decisions.

2016 Workplace Trends to be Aware of:

1. The need to create a mobile culture.

One of the most significant drivers of change is the rise of mobility. Work today is being done everywhere – at the office, at home, and on the road. The average workplace occupancy rate is dropping and a large portion of the workforce have private commitments that require flexibility. Organizations that recognize the need for mobility are better placed to attract the right talent.  Businesses are striving to become creative, flexible environments where people thrive.

2. Embracing the alternative workplace.

Work today is more about the output than the space. Organizations are embracing new ways of working to foster more efficient collaboration, knowledge-sharing, flexibility, speed, innovation, and productivity. More than 90% of respondents in Planon’s research agreed that new workplace concepts will improve employee productivity.

Does your current employer use either of these examples? What trends do you see coming in your workplace in 2016?
