How Office Spaces are Changing with Technology

In the post-pandemic world people are just returning to work at office or at least, are
employing a hybrid system of working from both home and office alternately. The pandemic
years changed the way we work in that all over the world, companies have realized that
working from office is not always the best solution as it doesn’t always mean more
However, employees do also find it necessary to visit their offices for various reasons such
as, client meetings, filing purposes, presentations and the like. And while technology has
changed the way we do things, that is for instance, removing the necessity to meet people
face-to-face, the human connection in the work place still remains important.
In this backdrop, however, maintaining large furnished office spaces has become
unnecessary. And so, many organizations are now renting out furnished co-working spaces
that are also complete with the required technology to carry out employees’ daily office
tasks. Tools such as Zoom, MS Teams, Skype,, etc., have enabled life to continue as
before in the work place, even if one is working from home, reducing the need for space at
the office along with minimizing the need to cubicles and furnishings, as well.
As a result, most work spaces now consist of open spaces for meetings and presentations,
and a small number of private work spaces that are equipped with laptops, secure servers,
overhead projectors, and good WiFi connections. This enables more efficient work that
requires human interaction to be carried out in the office, while enabling the takeaways
from such interactions to result in more productive work at employees’ homes.
Co-working spaces of the future thus, will not require huge spaces and capital. Instead, they
will only require the relevant technology, comfort and sustainable design. Thus, the ability
to work in pairs or small groups across tables that are equipped with PC’s and WiFi
connections or internet dongles, tabs that allow for easy movement within the work space,
and conference rooms that are sound-proof and equipped with projectors, printers,
intercoms and teleconferencing facilities, makes for an efficient work place without massive
In general, equipping employees with their own WiFi connections and PC’s has made the
office space less complicated. We should embrace this culture, and move forward with the
kind of technology that will serve both employees and businesses in the long run, by
strengthening company servers, server security and enabling a more secure sharing and
storing of data.
After all, successful companies are not built by investing in huge buildings. They are, in fact,
built by a greater degree of innovation and flexibility.
