Has the office had its day?

Happy New Year! The Economist this week reports on the trend for “co-working” – an alternative to home or traditional office that provides mobile workers with facilities to work and collaborate remotely. It concludes that this does not signal “the end of the conventional office”. While we agree there’s life in the office yet, its role is undoubtedly changing. As we show in Future Work, large businesses such as Unilever, Vodafone, Macquarie and Microsoft Netherlands are redesigning their offices for collaborative, rather than concentrated, work. The office is evolving from workplace to meeting place, with solitary tasks increasingly being done elsewhere. It’s not enough to move the furniture around, however. It requires a shift in corporate culture from command-and-control to enabling people to work the way that works best. Only then will organisations reap the full business benefits of future work.
