The workplace-jungle is changing more than ever.
The great return to the office is postponed.
The popularity of the home office leads to deserted and therefore unattractive spaces.
How can a workplace strategy play a part in reducing costs, attracting employees and increase productivity and wellbeing?
There are many ideas out there, but now, for the first time, is it possible to find a systematic and science-based approach documented in this book. It combines theory with hands on guidance.
The Book “Workplace Strategy for the Flexible Office” provides the theoretical understanding and the practical tools needed for creating and implementing a workplace strategy.
Using both the physical design of the workplace and the way of working as jumping-off points, the book present five research-based principles that guide your thinking when developing workplace strategies, and how this work can be carried out.
These principles are Right sizing, Diversify, Facilitate Collaboration, Increase Adaptability, and Insights Through Participation. Together they form the Workplace Adequacy™ Framework.
Contents of the book
- The first part of the book illustrates insights into the current state of research in the field combined with a theoretical model about how to use it.
- Part two presents a method and a practical review on how to develop and apply a workplace strategy.
- The final part of the book shows how workplace strategies could be executed by two different organisations with differing conditions – a tech company and a production company.
This book focuses on hybrid and flexible ways of working (e.g. activity-based working), but the method can also be applied to other ways of working. The book can be used as course literature in the education of workplace strategists and related roles, as well as for architects, project managers, change managers, facility managers, real estate consultants and similar professions whose work involves office design and new ways of working.
