The majority of companies are enjoying the economic recovery that has allowed them to resume the hiring that may have been stalled and offer promotions and raises to loyal employees who helped them ride out the downturn. Of course, everyone hopes that the good times will continue to roll, but the economic depression of the past decade will mean some more conservative money-saving workplace trends will be popular to ensure financial stability can be maintained with the long-term growth of the company.
One of the best ways for a company to save money in their workplace is to make sure the entire office is energy-efficient through energy-efficient equipment, smart technology that manages resources and energy, and increasing shared work spaces while decreasing private offices so that a more densely occupied office can use energy more efficiently.
These kinds of workplace changes to maximize efficiency might seem unpleasant, but when they are accompanied by interior redesigns that add a spark of fun and enhance the company brand and culture, they can actually lead to a more open and enjoyable workspace.
According to the Triple Pundit article, “5 Trends Shaping the Future of the Workplace,” by Bruno Gardner,
“New offices are being built to high-efficiency standards, and existing building stock is being retrofitted with sustainability in mind. Perhaps more importantly, an increasing number of organizations are putting robust procedures in place to ensure they operate their buildings as efficiently as possible.”
