Side view of an open space office with a black wall, many tables with computers on them and a concrete floor. 3d renderingThe effect of the workplace in daily life is well established with an average of 38 hours in the office every week in Oklahoma. However, some spaces still look like they’re anchored in a dated reality: sedentary, personal and control space.

Many people work on products from mid-90s in pure open spaces. These may also be outdated in case the design does not lead to discomfort and work dehumanization.

The virtual office space for rent stands in opposition to this organizational philosophy. And the argument is not lacking: improved common space management, employees’ loyalty, increased productivity, etc. This is the face of the offices of tomorrow.

Smart Office: A paradigm change at the source

In a rich infographic the Hiscox professional insurer said that 93% of young workers no longer want a traditional office, while 73% of employees of Edmond prefer to work together.

The reasons behind these opinions are many: work mobility, the emergence of the digital world, the relationship between private and business life, the search for meaning. However, a better view allows you to understand quickly that these (not so) new demands do not become a whim but reflect a change in the relationship between employees at work.

A first prism through which the necessity to design innovative workspaces is emerging is the generalization of teleworking and the ability to work outside the office. The employee in 2018 was never so nomadic. There are also several meanings to this nomadism: from work in the home office to mobility in the premises. The success of the offices on the “stand” and the presence of in-house sports coaches bears witness to the wish for good.

But the quality of working life alone is not all that explains. How can one not see the inefficiency of the conventional bureau in the various work situations which the employee faces every day, purely from a material point of view?

A creative meeting, intensive closure period, careful audit work, etc. must be able to transform and be easily adapted to every professional context by the innovative office.

Finally, the struggle for innovation is unconcerned by few companies. R&D poles and strong competitive intelligence are not sufficient anymore. Innovation is now the business of everybody and all the organization’s talents must be combined. There are two direct consequences for this philosophy change:

  • The termination of the vertical structure and the emergence of a flat hierarchical structure;
  • The birth of an era of ideas in which people work almost permanently, not alone.

For example, the company is provisioning its vacant spaces to illustrate this desire to innovate at each stage of a project. The objective? Welcome new partnership structures like start-ups to bring together talent and promote ‘open innovation.

iOffice: Email to virtual reality

New technologies are not newly integrated into the labor market. Our communications are mainly digital, intranet, emails, Wi-Fi, or videoconferences etc.

Just as it permits us to have a hold over our agenda, exchange ideas with remote personnel or show our time in office, high technology has every legitimacy to increase the efficiency and playfulness of our everyday work.

Many companies have designed a solution for the entire common and collaborative environment from this point of view. The employee’s journey from his entry into the company to his coat to return home was studied.

  • Several key applications are based on a realistic and efficient vision of the smart office:
