Accommodating the Liquid Workforce
How do you mesh today’s workforce of employees and freelance staff to create an environment that empowers the entire team and infuses your brand and culture? How can you make a flexible workspace while still creating a sense of belonging? And what mix of work areas will best empower freelancers without sacrificing a sense of ownership for full-timers?
While there is no one-size-fits-all answer, a workplace designed for a liquid workforce begins with a boundary-less work environment. Stuffy, boxy workspaces and desk assignments are giving way to areas designed for specific use, such as collaboration zones alongside easy-to-reserve private conference rooms and other quiet areas for heads-down work. Winning at the future of work depends on enabling every worker to work in the right place at the right time.
Key considerations to inspire the workplace include:
- Offer a vibrant workplace hub
- Manage uncertainty with workspace planning
- Empower offsite work from anywhere, anytime
- Cross-pollinate HR, workplace and technology goals
