The workplace is facing rapid changes, from task automation right through to office interior design, with a major push for change coming from the millennial generation. Millennials represent strong section of the workforce and as companies compete for strong staff, gone are the days of the corporate office. “The new generation wants a millennial workplace; a sense of culture, community and fun,” says Robert Nati, director of boutique office design company, InOne Projects. “An office needs to drive creativity and collaboration, and we’re seeing that request from almost all of our clients.”
Principles of Wellness
All work, no play? Your office might be stuck in the past.
The demand for workplaces to be increasingly flexible in a millennial world is also at the core of modern office design. Mobility is crucial in today’s workforce, as employees move from their desk to an airplane, to a cafe or client site – the workplace should integrate traditional desks with modern collaborative spaces that provide employees with another option. The trend today is towards offices with varying huddle and meeting spaces, from small think-tanks to the traditional boardroom; all to encourage collaboration and creative teamwork. Coworking is also taking off, with trendy shared spaces becoming popular worldwide – the flexibility and freedom they offer the freelancer, the home office worker and soon, the ordinary employee, make us think this is definitely a trend to stay.
The corporate office is a thing of the past: today’s workforce are looking for a space that gives them wellness, flexibility and fun. At inOne Projects, we design spaces that will change how your staff feel when they walk in each day and have them love where they work.
