The Future of the Office Post-Covid

After months of remote working for many organisations, employees are slowly trickling back into office spaces, in many cases, combined with remote working.
The new ways of working are sure to impact our idea of the traditional ‘office’ moving forwards, but what does this future look like?

Increased productivity

It might sound optimistic, but accounting for the fact that workforce trends have been changing over the last few years, many organisations will be adapting to a higher level of productivity.

With the few months of remote working during the peak of lockdown came an increased reliance on technology, such as the use of video conferencing.

Cloud technology in particular has changed the way organisations collaborate on projects, allowing documents to be shared and updated in real time – no longer sending documents back and forth over email.

Projects get done faster, in a shorter amount of time.


Streamlined collaboration

It’s likely that offices will still be functioning with some employees working remotely, and others in physical office spaces.

The balance brings a flexibility that can positively impact the way a team functions.

When it comes to collaboration, the use of cloud computing will again have a positive impact, allowing seamless integrations onto multiple devices so that teams can remain updated and informed no matter their location.

The lines of communication that have been expanded to adapt to post-lockdown workplaces offer a unique opportunity to keep a team just as connected, if not more so, than they were pre-Covid.



We recently explored how our headquarters – The Technology Barn – could look post-Covid.

Better communication

Communication won’t just change within the organisation, but the way it interacts with clients as well.

The way organisations can communicate with clients is evolving, with many opting for online or remote forms of communication to adapt to changing client preferences.

A business telecoms system, for example, may be used in order to have adaptable phone communications that can reroute calls effectively to employees with the most suitable skills to deal with specific needs.


Higher priority on support for systems

With increased usage of software and systems, more emphasis is being placed on heightened support and security.

Whether it’s in the form of outsourcing to a dedicated IT support team, in which protection is prioritised by ensuring all tech is secure and backed up, or emphasising cloud computing as a more secure option to protect data and infrastructure from potential issues, there are a multitude of options organisations can choose from to prioritise security.

In any case, organisations will be looking to implement the most secure systems moving forward as workforces rely more on the assistance of adaptable technology for their communication and customer service.



Adapting to change can be difficult, and every business will have different needs for their post-Covid office.
