Global companies are currently implementing their new hybrid work models and assessing how the disrupted workflows might influence their professional needs for new or more flexible office spaces and environments.

How should companies utilize their redundant office square feet when a considerable number of their employees will work from home in future and leave their office spaces just half occupied ...?

Up through the autumn, companies globally have been reconsidering and deciding their future office space needs while ascertaining their new hybrid work models and workflows functioning. 

Several office companies did find their current premises too large or outdated and wanting to downsize to smaller and more flexible workspaces and facilities focusing on health and well-being. 

According to experts, many companies can reduce the number of their office square feet by as much as 10-25-33% or even more by switching to new hybrid work models and post-covid solutions.


Redundant square feet

"Still, the office market is only on the verge of change, but several surveys confirm a remarkable increase in companies' interest in new smaller but more flexible office space options," MatchOffice CEO Jakob Dalhoff says. 

"When upon the covid-lockdowns many companies decide to let their employees work remotely, their need for physical space will decrease. Therefore, we will see many of them terminate their leases and look for better suitable solutions."
