The majority of contractors, solopreneurs and freelancers have already entered into the workforce. The state of the current economy has created an entirely new set of rules for the workplace. With all these new rules, is your workplace meeting the challenge? According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, it is estimated that as much as 40 percent of the US population will be working in a freelance situation by the year 2020. Do you have any idea what this means for your workplace and a traditional office space?
What is the new workplace going to look like in the next five or six years and how will employees and employers continue to stay productive, as well as profitable? There is one thing you can be sure of: the demand for traditional office spaces is going to begin to dwindle.
A portion of the answer going forward is going to be flexible workspace and a larger demand for shared workspaces across all of the business sectors. These types of environments have been designed specifically for collaboration and they offer a number of different settings that will help to meet worker’s needs when they need a place where they can just drop by, work and hour, and go.
Work is no longer going to be a destination, just what is done on a day to day basis. Thanks to advances in mobile technology, there is going to be a higher level of freedom and flexibility to allow people to choose where and when they work. On demand, shared office space is something that will provide both employees and employers what they need to remain successful.
