Offices remain a sustainable and profitable investment: they need to be optimized to contribute to well-being, innovation and performance.
The home office has turned the corporate world upside down, but offices haven’t said their last word. Quite the opposite: they have become more important than ever, offering unique benefits to companies and employees alike.
Here are at least 5 good reasons to keep offices even when working from home:
Offices foster collaboration and innovation
Face-to-face work allows employees to meet, exchange ideas and work together on common projects. This fosters collaboration and innovation, which are critical to business success. Without an office space, it is difficult to provide access to specialized equipment, machines, etc. to facilitate work and innovation.
Offices are essential to employees’ well-being
A pleasant and stimulating working environment contributes to the motivation and productivity of employees. Offices offer comfortable and equipped workspaces, as well as services and activities that promote the well-being of employees and promote the notion of belonging to the team.
Offices are a sustainable investment
Offices can be designed to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. They can also be equipped with state-of-the-art technologies that contribute to energy efficiency. At Campus Contern, for example, we are the first building in Luxembourg to be CO2 neutral, and our buildings are BREEAM Excellent certified (a guarantee of respecting nature and user comfort).
Offices are an indispensable communication tool
Offices allow companies to communicate effectively with their customers and partners. They offer a place to meet and exchange, which is essential to the creation of relationships of trust. It is also a great tool to show a quality of service, an image and therefore valuable communication to the outside and also internally, with employees.
Offices are also becoming a CSR tool
With the new SGRD regulations, governance and ESG reporting obligations, the office takes a large place in the CSR report of companies. Having a fixed office makes it possible to raise and assert its eco-responsibility by the traceability of actions, consumptions etc. This is impossible to argue with teleworking.
Offices are therefore a complement to teleworking. They offer unique advantages to companies and employees and therefore allow the company to be in the best conditions to grow.
