Co-working spaces have gained popularity in recent years in Luxembourg, as workers appreciate a place where they can work without feeling confined. Moreover, these spaces are not only reserved for innovative start-ups; companies are also looking at the future of their work.
Since the pandemic, co-working spaces have become an increasingly important part of the equation. While office rentals will never go away, the way people use these spaces is changing with each person and time. Pandemic may have accelerated habits and trends by a few years.
But are these spaces here to stay? Let’s take a look at how they can remain relevant to today’s and tomorrow’s workforce.
Co-working spaces: the future of office space
If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve noticed that co-working spaces have had a huge impact on how we work. After all, this option is flexible. Coworking spaces can reduce overhead for some small businesses, startups, and freelancers by offering flexible contracts and high-quality office equipment without a long-term commitment to an uncertain market.
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an explosion of coworking in Luxembourg, reserved for technology companies, startups and freelancers. Companies can attract new talent and workers can learn from each other more easily. Most importantly, companies can get out of the hassle of office management.
Reorganize the workplace strategy
Before 2020, the office space provider market was more homogeneous, occupied by a few large companies. Today, the market is seeing the arrival of new companies, resulting in more competitive offerings and specialized office space services.
Whether it’s a co-working space or a company, those in leadership positions in these organizations need to understand how it works. After all, they are the future of the workforce.
Today’s workers want a collaborative work environment. They don’t want to work independently in a siloed service environment. They want to be able to talk with their colleagues and find solutions together.
The COVID pandemic has shown that collaboration can work just as well digitally; as things change in the workplace, these collaborative spaces need to change physically as well.
Our tagline is: An office should adapt to your needs, to your tasks, and provide a space for creativity and collaboration, but also for focus.
Office space costs
The price of office space has changed dramatically in recent years. Budget workspaces are becoming more prevalent in some cities, while demand is driving up prices in other areas. Today, they remain a staple for many national and even international brands, in large part because of their affordability.
Office costs will continue to fluctuate throughout the year, but as people get their shots and return to the office, increasing demand will only push prices up from their historically low levels.
In the future, collaborative workspaces must be mindful of workforce demands and continually adapt to provide cutting-edge technology, amenities and even recreation.
Not only is there more competition to drive innovation, but we can also expect attitudinal changes in how we use and share space with others, especially to offset the rising cost of traditional offices.
When you provide your employees with a flexible workplace that encourages collaboration, you help them learn new things and grow as individuals.
