In IWFM’s new hybrid working research in partnership with Ricoh, ‘The workplace now and in the future’, leading figures in the workplace and facilities management sector offer their insights on what the future workplace should look like. 

One of our respondents, David Carr from Bouygues E & S UK Limited, said: ‘There is a new rhythm of life, and what we’re saying to our people is that you should identify what you’re doing and go to the right place to do it. 

‘We give the responsibility to the individual, but we do have quite strong management guidance just to make sure that people are settling into the proper new way of working.’ 

But the considerations go deeper than simply deciding where people should work; effective digitalisation is key to facilitating hybrid working and then there are the cybersecurity concerns in an increasingly connected world. In the full report, expert views cover all of these areas.
