How it was
The way businesses run is changing. People working from home, non-standard hours or days, hot desking, working on site or on the road, the options go on.
New realities Smartphones and tablets mean employees can Bring Their Own Devices (BYOD) to work which has opened the door to far greater mobility.
The modern office
As a result, how we work and where has changed dramatically as well as the types of offices or spaces we work in. Being chained to a desk that we called our own for years is no longer how we operate.
The modern office now consists of:
- Hot desking – desks provided on a rota system
- Virtual offices – you don’t bear the capital expenses of owning or leasing a building
- Co-working spaces – a shared workspace or office
- Working from home
This is the modern office nowadays – so how do we all communicate?
