When given the choice, people are drawn to the places that make them feel the best and most productive. Why do people value being in the workplace? To collaborate, create, and innovate. To connect socially. To leverage the teams, networks, and processes that help them perform their best. To be inspired. Its purpose has shifted from where we had to work to a place that’s more dynamic and experiential than ever.

Work is likely to be done in more than one location. When we think about what the future of work looks like, it is at the center of an integrated ecosystem that balances work among three primary physical locations: office, home, and third places.

By now, we’re well acquainted with our home workplace after being sequestered in our homes for months and working remotely during the pandemic. The home office will continue to evolve to support activities like focus work, reading, scheduled calls, and virtual meetings. Home also plays a role in the work/life balance equation when flexible schedules are supported by employers.

Three Areas of Focus

Culture & Innovation: Preserving your unique culture to empower your workforce and leverage your space is essential. This includes building community and empowering teams to perform and innovate.
 
Well-Being: Supporting people's physical and psychological health builds confidence and enhances performance. Minimizing stress, promoting movement, and enhancing human performance are the themes emerging from our research.
 
Flexibility/Adaptability: People are empowered to work fluidly in an ecosystem that includes office, home, and third places. This flexibility lets them choose the right space for the right task, with the resources and technology that support both.
