Offering a hybrid work model is attractive to potential employees andis a compelling factor when hiring new talent. It also brings out the need to offer your employees a work space which supports them and helps them to thrive and achieve their goals. You’ll need to consider acoustic solutions and meeting rooms that can adapt to the needs of the users. The plans might also include how to utilise more flexible office space and how to offer support to set up a home office for your employees.
