While hybrid working offers many benefits, it also presents challenges for companies and employees alike. To truly understand how hybrid working is impacting employees and the organization as a whole, it is necessary to use qualitative (ethnographic) inquiry to gather information about the employee experience.
Activity-based working, also known as ABW, is a modern approach to organizing office space and workflows. It is a departure from the traditional model of assigned desks and fixed workstations, and instead prioritizes flexibility and collaboration.
Today’s workers are more mobile and more independent than ever before, and they are looking for flexible workspaces that can keep up with their lifestyle. Coworking spaces have responded by offering memberships that allow access to multiple locations, extended hours, and on-demand workspace. In addition, many coworking spaces now offer additional services such as childcare, wellness programs, and social events. As the workforce continues to evolve, the coworking industry will need to continue to adapt to meet the changing needs of workers.
