“The world is changing, habits are evolving and the workplace needs to catch up”

The 2016 workplace is all about choice and control, for both employees and employers. Flexibility, in the way people work and in office layouts and uses, is becoming the most effective way for companies to get the best people, the best work and the most value from their real estate portfolios.

“The world is changing, habits are evolving and the workplace needs to catch up”
CallisonRTKL's Workplace Strategy Team has identified five trends shaping today's workplace. These concepts, each an evolution of forces that have defined the workplace over the last decade, will influence the way people and organizations work in 2016 and beyond.

Five key trends for 2016

1. Workplace as Competitive Advantage 
Companies around the globe are seeking to improve the bottom line and finding that investing in real estate is a worthwhile way to add value instead of just cutting costs.

2. Staying Well at Work
Promoting health and well-being is a win-win for employers and workers.

3. Work Anywhere and Everywhere
With more technology, more tools, and more choice, 2016 is the year of more. 

4. Work/Life Integration
Time to get social at work, but set boundaries to improve productivity. Good design helps employees do both.

5. Culture of Sharing
The idea of using resources better resonates well with both clients and employees – from a financial perspective, from a social perspective, and from an environmental perspective.
