Observers say that earlier offices were places where people worked in close coordination. For example, they used to gather in the meeting room in the morning and talk over tea and coffee about what to do throughout the day. But this work culture seems to have changed now.

After the corona epidemic in America, when normal life is starting, it has been seen that now the entire look of the offices has changed. Now the culture of the hybrid office has become common. This means that some people come to the office and work, while the rest of the employees are continuing to work from home.

Observers say that earlier offices were places where people worked in close coordination. For example, they used to gather in the meeting room in the morning and talk over tea and coffee about what to do throughout the day. But this work culture seems to have changed now. Commercial real estate and investment services agency CBRE has released a report on the changing face of offices.

Removal of private places in offices

According to this report, about 60 percent of companies in America are now redesigning their offices after the epidemic. CBRE has prepared this report after a comprehensive survey of company offices. According to this, now about a quarter of the companies have completely removed the private spaces in their offices. Private place means cabin or special place available to specific employees. Even in companies that have kept private spaces in their offices, about 80 percent have reduced their size. Now the average size of such office spaces is 149 square feet or less.

The lead article of this report, Susan Weismond, told the website Axios.com that people are now more and more preferring to work from home. They want to come to the office only when necessary or on special occasions. It has been said in the CBRE report that the employees who come to the office now want to spend full time there so that the work can be completed quickly. However, Wesmond said – ‘It will never happen that the office ends.’ But this study has indicated that the appearance of such sites will change. It has been said that full employees are still coming to the offices of investment banks and law firms. It is estimated that these will be few areas, where the practice of offices will continue for a long time. The officers’ cabins will also remain there.

employees are nervous

Peter Capelli, director of the Whartons Center for Human Resources, told the website Axios that for a long time, many employees would suffer from the nervousness caused by the pandemic. In such a situation, they would like to work from their home. Therefore, the round of video meetings will continue for now, because not all employees will be able to be present in the office.

Wesmond has said that what seems to be missing are the decorated cabins where a man used to sit. There these officers also kept their family photographs. Now companies are making all the space present in the office such that anyone can use any place.
