Back Ricoh joins Asia-Pacific Climate Leaders list for two consecutive years
The office gets smaller
Recently, the epidemic situation in Hong Kong is severe, and some enterprises and government departments have made arrangement for some employees to work from home. One study showed that 94% of employers found productivity the same, if not higher, after transitioning to remote work during COVID-19, with 83% planning to continue a hybrid schedule indefinitely. Companies are making important space decisions as they manage the effects COVID-19 has had on how and where their employees work. The pandemic proved that remote work does not negatively impact employee efficacy. Fewer people in the office can mean less office space.

Facilitate in-office collaboration
Nevertheless, there is logic in reducing space and encouraging employees back into the office. The underlying question here is that although many jobs can be done productively with employees working from home, what immeasurable metrics of creativity may be lost? For companies that put a premium on collaboration and innovation, gathering employees in the same space creates an environment where new and cutting-edge ideas can bloom. This has to do with a new approach to floor plans. By creating more open workspaces with hot-desking and unassigned seating, collaboration and intraoffice morale can be promoted and more people can be accommodated in smaller spaces.
Construct hybrid workplace
Hybrid working is the new format of remote working, offering employees greater flexibility. While you may not have the same resources as global tech brands, you can still follow a similar playbook. After all, in a hybrid world, working from home is a desirable norm. The pandemic has changed the way we collaborate, and companies need to provide on-site meeting space. How to revamp the existing office? Should we increase meeting spaces instead of renovating the whole office?
