What is driving this change?
Cost: By working in a more agile way, sq ft per fee earner can decrease and revenue per sq ft increase.
Flexibility: An agile working environment allows for flexibility in employee adjustments.
Collaboration: An open plan work environment allows for greater collaboration and communication across an organisation which in turn results in increased productivity.
Talent: A quality work environment is required to attract and retain the best talent. A large majority of the younger generation prefer agile working and if a workplace doesn’t facilitate this, they may not consider applying for the job.
Mobility: Employees are demanding more mobility and firms are investing in the necessary tools and technology to support this.
Technology: Technology allows for greater efficiency which results in more billable hours.
