WORKTECH Academy Q2 Trend Report: The new office takes shape

We’re on the precipice of the UK workforce returning to their offices.

But there are big questions around the changes of the past 18 months and what they mean to the physical workplace.

There is growing evidence that more and more companies are settling on a hybrid working model that will entail at least two or three days in the office per week.

This of course will have enormous effects on how workers communicate and how they, and their respective businesses, use their physical space and virtual communication tools.

WORKTECH Academy is the world’s leading knowledge platform and member network, created to explore the future of work and the workplace.

The ‘WORKTECH Academy Q2 Trend Report’ explores these effects, and discusses how businesses can navigate – even leverage – these changes to make the office an attractive proposition to employees who now have more choice in where and how they work.
