As we’re easing back into the workplace, most organizations have adopted a hybrid workplace. That doesn’t necessarily mean preferential parking for hybrid vehicles. This means you can work part of the time at home and the amount of the time in the office. And it doesn’t matter if your drive an Electric or Gas vehicle.
Organizations that are reducing office lease space:
- The government of California got rid of 767,000 SF of office space, for an annual savings of $22 million
- Georgia Department of Education has decided to reduce its office footprint at its 150,000 Square feet state-owned headquarters in Downtown Atlanta by more than half, with part of the staff working from home or in remote
- The average office attendance in the top 10 cities is still down by about 60% from February 2020, meaning that attendance is running at 40%
It’s clear to see the developing trend for a reduction in office space. And having a hybrid model is soon becoming the norm. The new challenge, many organizations are reducing their office space substantially to accommodate this new post-pandemic workplace. So that means your usual cubicle or dedicated office becomes a shared resource which we call Hoteling. So, if you start seeing executives leaving with their personal office belongings in a box, it doesn’t mean they have been fired. These employees’ dedicated offices will now be shared desks or offices. So, if you are used to walking into your manager’s usual office, you might find someone else working there. MyLobby Hoteling App will most likely help you find you’re their day office location. It can do much more than than that, it can:
Book meeting rooms
Provide a list of meeting rooms are available with detailed descriptions from capacity to audio-video hardware available
Reduce capacity if restrictions are in place
Reminder emails and text messages
Reminder notifications to sign in and out
