As businesses adopt remote work models, many organisations are re-evaluating their expansion plans and seeking new workspace arrangements to support a hybrid model of days in and out of the office.

Ever felt like you’re getting you bogged down in the small stuff? Feel like you haven’t got enough time on the clock to get everything done? Well, you’re not alone. There are many great reasons for outsourcing work—but it isn’t until you’re swamped that you start considering your options.

As the world is forced to refocus on health and safety, telecommuting is creating a new kind of hybrid workspace where employees combine working from home with working on-site.

But just what exactly does this new hybrid workspace actually mean for the future of office spaces? Will organisations ever return to the ‘old way’ of working? Or will the circumstances we’ve become accustomed to in 2020 force organisations to move towards a new, improved and more practical way for people to work safely that combines the best of both worlds?

Let’s talk local. Because if there was ever a time to support Australian made products and Australian owned companies, it’s now.

Coronavirus lockdowns have highlighted the gaping holes in worldwide distribution and supply chains.

In some ways, an office layout is just like your home – if it’s not a space you want to be in then you probably won’t enjoy spending time there. But unlike your home, a less than perfect office fit out can translate into lost productivity, directly affect team collaboration and interrupt optimal work flow. Your commercial fit out can also affect workers’ morale, creativity, productivity, camaraderie and brand loyalty.

On the other hand, a bespoke office fit out has the power to drive new innovation forward in a direct and measurable way. Concentrating on the four key modes your employees work—focus, collaboration, learning, and socialising—can boost productivity and encourage your people to do their best work every day.

So, it’s vital to get your fit out right.
