Spot the difference: Hotel VS Office

Apr 19, 2023 12:05:33 PM / by Banner posted in Working Smarter, Employee Wellbeing, Return to the Workplace, Work from Anywhere, furniture


Co-working spaces have boomed since the pandemic and the associated normalisation of hybrid working.

These businesses offer a sensible solution that makes good economic sense to businesses that want to reduce their overheads. If your staff aren’t in the office for even 3 days a week, you can see why getting rid of the office entirely and instead renting a desk somewhere, no-strings-attached, might be tempting.

But this has created a new market, and these co-working spaces are competing. One of the benefits of this competition is new trend: the hotelification of the office.

Hybrid’s healthier! Believe it or not, working from home isn’t making us sedentary

Feb 28, 2023 2:52:13 PM / by Banner posted in Environmentally Friendly Products, furniture


Hybrid working is making it easier for people to take care of their health and well-being, data shows.
