Smart office definition
Smartphones, smart home, smart cars … in some few years, the “connected” has invested every corner of our lives. Measuring the quality of sleep, monitoring sports performance, analyzing the air quality of the house and even clothes connected, nothing escapes the digitalization of uses.
With an average of 38 hours spent in the office each week in France, the impact of the workplace in everyday life is well established. Yet, it seems that certain spaces are still anchored in a dated reality: that of sedentary, individuality and control.
Many employees are working in pure open spaces products from the mid-90s. These could also seem outdated if their design does not cause malaise and dehumanization of work.
The antipodes of this organizational philosophy stands the bubbling Smart Office. And there is no shortage of arguments: better management of shared spaces, loyalty of employees, increased productivity, etc. Here is the face of tomorrow’s offices.
Smart Office: a change of paradigm at the origin
In a rich infographic, the professional insurer Hiscox told us that 93% of young workers no longer wanted a traditional office and 73% of French employees preferred collaborative workspaces. It was in 2016.
Mobility at work, the rise of the digital world, the connection between private and professional life, the search for meaning, the reasons that explain these opinions are many. A better view, however, makes it possible to quickly understand that these (not so) new requests are not whimsical but reflect a change in the relationship between staff members at work.
