Coworking, home office or dedicated desk?

29.09.2022

Twelve years ago, a new trend of coworking, or shared workspaces, flourished behind a large puddle. And since the supply grows with the demand, it is not surprising that we can find coworking spaces in the Czech Republic today, especially in larger cities, where freelancers and university students use them the most.

However, this does not mean that this trend would fully replace classic offices. Companies planning new office facilities absorb the atmosphere of new work trends that they want to implement in their designs. You can find out about the trends a few lines below.

Recently, the concept of home office has become very well known and has been adopted by many companies. Allowing people to work from home is convenient, but not everyone has the opportunity to turn their home into an office that allows full work engagement. The Labor Code will also focus more on this, which will change after two years and take into account new work initiatives, such as the aforementioned home office for parents with children under 15 and pregnant women.

It is not new that man is a social creature, therefore he needs society to some extent. Regardless of the fact that good work performance and out-of-the-box outputs require a diverse environment that inspires, but at the same time can also demotivate.

 Healthy body healthy mind

Another no less important aspect in today's offices is movement and health. Finding a chair that doesn't hurt your back after 8 hours of sitting is almost impossible. That is why he takes care of natural movement around the workplace, which stretches just enough and gives the necessary vigor. Whether it's a trip to the kitchen for a cup of coffee or greeting a colleague sitting in another department.

According to leading architects, an ideal office should naturally encourage people to move and socialize. The space is also worked more organically and variably. There is no need to have each department separated by a wall, or try to fit as many people as possible into a small space at all costs. There are more and more options, just don't stick to old habits and use the possibilities that the space offers to benefit the well-being of your employees. The first customer is always a company employee.

The goal could be considered a variable space that offers both work at a desk, informal sitting, but also private spaces that allow for a job interview or meeting. Cleanliness, quality lighting and functional equipment. Unique office design has its rightful place, unfortunately not everyone has room for it in their budget.

 Tip at the end

Not all office units have multiple meeting rooms or a place where there is enough privacy for an online meeting. The problem is countered by acoustic booths that do not take up much space, are soundproofed, and even offer the option of charging a computer or phone. The purchase price is not the lowest, but it is a portable piece of office that, in case of moving, you can simply take it with you.
