The future of workplace experience with MAPP: Embracing a new way of working
Dan Bladen, CEO & Co-Founder
“The office has a future – it is just going to look different and needs to do something different than it has been in the past.”
This week on our ‘Future of Workplace Experience’ series, we discussed with Founder and CEO of MAPP, Nigel Mapp on rethinking the purposing of offices and using it as a tool to retain the best talent. Check out our interview and key takeaways below.
Employee safety and assurance: The number one priority
Things are going to look very different when we return and you can expect a number of control measures in place at MAPP managed buildings, for example:
Getting employees safely to their office with signage and floor marks to keep people 2m apart
Queuing systems in place with designated one lift up and one down
Using fire escapes stairwell as one way system for going down
Touchless measures by disabling building entrance barriers
Embracing a new way of working
At MAPP, we ran a survey of how our workforce want to work post-pandemic and only a minority of our employees would like to return to office more than 3 days a week.
Offices will need to rediscover a purpose and there is a lot we can learn from retail. It will become a place where the brand exists and remain as a place to get people together and exchange ideas.
Companies will use space to project an image and for their people to belong, to collaborate, and share great thinking as opposed to housing rows and rows of workstations.
Offices might also start to become seen as a ‘perk’ to retaining talents as everybody wants to work in a great space. We can expect companies to occupy less space and invest in quality and infrastructure.
