"Since the pandemic started it seems that barriers to working in a more efficient and innovative way have disappeared overnight! "
Jeremy Poole, Sales Director at Building Interiors

  • “The office is certainly not dead. It just needs to evolve.”

28th April 2021 - Commercial refurbishment company, Building Interiors, has compiled a new whitepaper entitled “Modern Working Methods” that looks at agile working and how business owners can better equip their offices for a post-pandemic future.  

A shift away from static 9-5 working has been underway for some time, however the Covid pandemic has really given rise to this movement. More flexible homeworking has been imposed upon both employers and employees and made way for buzzwords such as ‘agile’ and ‘hybrid’ working. 

Hybrid working is the term used for a work style that allows employees to work from different locations - home, the office, or on-the-go. It encourages autonomy and flexibility.

In contrast, agile working focuses on work activities and how these can be carried out most comfortably and successfully, rather than where the work is being carried out. Agile working brings people, processes, creativity, technology, time and place together to find an effective way of carrying out tasks. 

Building Interiors’ Modern Working Methods whitepaper highlights the benefits of agile and hybrid working, how these new working methods can be put into practice and how they can positively impact any business.

The whitepaper sets out the 6 fundamental requirements for creating an agile working environment, providing business owners with the knowledge they need to implement agile working into their own organisations. These fundamentals include implementing unassigned desking and introducing quiet nooks. 

Through the whitepaper Building Interiors are keen to acknowledge that, although moving to agile working will require an initial monetary outlay, agile will eliminate the need for office upsizing, therefore saving businesses money in the long-term. 

To keep costs down Building Interiors suggest a phased approach to agile by reworking existing furniture and implementing just the 6 key elements of agile working.

More than simply saving money though, the whitepaper describes how agile working allows employees to have more input into how and when they work, leading to improved employee mental health and boosting productivity. 

Regarding their new whitepaper, Jeremy Poole, Sales Director at Building Interiors said: “I have been discussing modern methods of working with clients for over 10 years and there has definitely been a reticence for change, however recently organisations have been embracing change in a remarkable way. Since the pandemic started it seems that barriers to working in a more efficient and innovative way have disappeared overnight! We really hope that our new whitepaper will help businesses to foster a more agile and effective way of working.”
