2022 TRENDS TO WATCH
Get a solid grasp on what’s coming in 2022 as we look into the future for employees, the environments they work in, and the commercial interiors industry as a whole.
A curated selection of solutions from INDEAL Brand Partners that meet both immediate and long-term space needs, including employee-first design, front desk spaces, and hybrid work trends.
Design has always mattered in recruiting and retaining good employees. Spaces that communicate, “we care about your health and well-being” attract and keep better talent.
In 2022, “employee-first design” has an additional role – bringing people back to the office. If employers haven’t taken the time to separate work areas, install safety features, and communicate a sense of wellness, employees are much less likely to feel comfortable returning.
People want to be safe and feel safe, so furnishings, settings, and accessories need to communicate and support this.
Building on Employee First Design, first impressions matter more, regardless of company size. The receptionist position has expanded to include greeter + concierge + experience manager. As we continue to navigate a global pandemic, the reception position is essential to ensuring guests and employees are safe and feel safe. (Do you sense a reoccurring theme here?)
Even companies without a personally staffed reception desk can ensure a great first impression. Consider wellness accessories and limited touch technology to sign in, conduct a temperature check, and give direction.
Let’s be honest. The global pandemic didn’t create hybrid work – it amplified a growing trend that revolved around connecting individuals and teams now working from a common physical location. Partnering with remote colleagues is good for personal and team development – and it’s here to stay.
