The Top Trends That Are Changing Our Work Environments

Trends come and go, but one thing is for sure – in the workplace, these trends allow us to make improvements and positive changes. According to The Modern Workplace 2018: People, Places & Technology Report, business leaders are deriving benefits from being more environmentally conscious – costs are being saved, and clients are happy with the choices being made. As we move towards a more digitised workplace, the Internet of Things and its use of sensors will ensure that the environment is further protected, enabling us to use less energy overall. The traditional structure and routine of the workplace continues to evolve into something that better suits our modern lives. From hot desking to remote working, business leaders and employees alike see the benefits of agility in the workplace. As per The Modern Workplace 2018: People, Places & Technology Report, 10 per cent of UK companies currently do not currently offer flexible working – but look for that to change in the near future. As video tech continues to advance, this is one trend that will continue to have legs – and may even cause even more of a shift in the workplace in years to come.
