The workplace of the future will be hybrid. A fluid experience realized across a continuum of spaces, motivated by a person’s ability to choose when and where they work. This flexibility, while not new to all, will be new to many and will have far reaching impact.
The hybrid workplace will bring increased movement between workspaces. The flow of people into the office may be inconsistent, with some days bringing more activity than others. The office will have various purposes, whether that be access to spaces designed for productivity and collaboration, reliable network connectivity, or a destination to help separate work and life. Regardless of the many possible reasons to go into the office, the decision will be deliberate. To ensure people working remotely can fully participate in team collaboration and meetings, workspaces in the office will need technology to help bridge the divide.
