It’s important to remember people are social beings who thrive better amongst others. Spontaneous interactions can help problem solve and spark ideas, helping to build a strong community culture. This can be difficult to recreate virtually but hybrid working provides a complex interplay of online and in-person networks.
Time spent in meetings has more than doubled this year. Creating spaces for social capital to thrive, both in the workplace and virtually, provides a balance. Ensuring meetings are well-planned and purposeful, with all participants included, strengthens social ties. Providing a range of physical meeting spaces serves the varying needs of teams.
Within The Hive, our Project Room hosts a selection of portable, free-standing or wall-mounted whiteboards to showcase documents and annotations, visualise concepts and assist with pitching. Alternatively, our Auditorium space is perfect for group video calls, training sessions and brand partner showcases. AV equipment allows remote individuals to participate, and careful space planning ensures those within the office have an uninterrupted view.
Similarly, our Work Café transforms the traditional corporate cafeteria into a dynamic space that can be utilised for not only refreshments but collaboration, focus and relaxation.
