It is not just the recent discussions surrounding the legal entitlement to work from home which have shown that conventional work models are about to change! But all too often, we only look at one aspect of this new challenge. This is not about one guaranteed day of working from home every two weeks, but rather about a fundamental question:
How do we want to design the way we will work in the future?
Our work is part of our life. It means that I have come to expect that my work environment will seamlessly adjust not only to my every-day situation but also to my current location. It is particularly the current coronavirus pandemic and the fast-growing case numbers that require us to re-evaluate our work locations. And to look at the bigger picture: At the core, this is not about the question of whether we need an office, but rather about how we can make the transitions in our work more fluid, and how we can change between work situations more easily.
