WeWork offers UK tenants greater flexibility to tempt them back

Sridhar Iyengar, MD, Zoho Europe, speaks about the importance of a hybrid working model and how it is imperative for business decision makers to equip IT teams with better long-term solutions to surging demand for their services.

Sridhar Iyengar, MD, Zoho Europe, comments: “It’s no surprise to see WeWork is aiming to provide a more flexible option to tenants in the UK, allowing a hybrid set up between office and home. Post the pandemic, we expect to see trends shifting with a dramatic reduction in the traditional business location model, including the large central head office in a major city. This creates a need for companies like WeWork to provide a flexible model and for example, offer PAYG office space to companies who close their large head offices or create new offices which enable hub and spoke models. This enables companies to have smaller office spaces for staff to rotate attendance, or to have premises closer to smaller clusters of an employee base, and the option to use a bigger space in a central point for all-staff when required.”

“We expect another legacy of the pandemic to be the rise of the hybrid working model, which requires employers to consider a new approach to flexible working policies. It is crucial that companies are agile in switching between home and office working because even once the lockdown restrictions start to ease, we may still be advised to continue with home working where possible. This model can certainly provide the best of both worlds for employee productivity and wellbeing.”

“With these new trends, it is imperative for business decision makers to equip IT teams with better long-term solutions to surging demand for their services. This includes adopting a scalable suite of SaaS applications, which are designed to enable and streamline head-to-toe hybrid working. This type of technology can be the solution that ensures organisations remain flexible and adaptable this year, and beyond.”
