The global pandemic has seen a spike in interest in co-working 温泉 ces as employers and employees consider how the future of the workplace, post COVID-19, will look. Global 温泉 ce-as-a-service provider 我们工作, with 32 温泉 ces across Southeast 亚洲 including four in 泰国, has seen enterprises increasing almost 10% in its member pool during the COVID-19 period (March to July, 2020).
As businesses and staff return to work, needs and priorities have changed. Having embraced the evolving “new normal”, benchmarking cleanliness and sanitisation standards, and providing essential 温泉 ce flexibility and agility for businesses, enterprises are increasingly turning to 我们工作 as they pivot and reimagine their workplace strategy post COVID-19.
“Beyond the short term requirements of creating safe 温泉 ces for employees to return to, we are seeing enterprises accelerating efforts to inject flexibility into their real estate portfolio. Over the last couple of months, we have continued to help companies address their workspace needs to ensure their long-term business success. 我们工作 is designed to help support this shift and will continue to see the new work order’s emphasis on a hybrid of flexible workspace arrangements,” said Ray Tan, 我们工作 head of growth for Southeast 亚洲 and Korea.

If COVID-19 has highlighted one thing, it is the unpredictability and speed with which things can change. As companies return to work and 泰国 enters a new post COVID-19 reality, 我们工作 sees three key trends that are top of mind for enterprises in developing their new workplace strategies.
2）运营可扩展性和成本优化– For many companies, 我们工作’s speed to scale, experience of being three times faster than traditional options and reduction of committed costs by up to 50% are key differentiators for them. Companies are looking to move away from long-term lease commitments and opt for 温泉 ce-as-a-service providers like 我们工作; while those focused on recalibrating their business have also opted to consolidate their presence with 我们工作 to support current operations, with hopes of expansion in the future.
3）员工经验– Companies need to drive confidence and assurance that hygiene and cleanliness standards are met for employees returning to the office, and this is made possible with 我们工作’s expertise as a partner. With 我们工作’s locations ready from prioritising personal 温泉 ce to increased sanitization, the physical 温泉 ces highlight the importance of these elements such as employee integration and experience to drive productivity, motivation and connection.
“As the office gets repurposed to become a distributed and collaboration hub, emphasis is now on mid- to long-term focuses needed to support productivity and a robust 文化. Through our conversations with leading enterprises, it’s clear that success of businesses depends heavily on how nimble teams are in adjusting to this change. 我们工作 is designed to support this shift as we continue to support enterprises navigate through this period,” added Tan.
我们工作’s prompt action when the pandemic first started meant locations in 泰国 already implemented best practices from an operational and hygiene standpoint in compliance with local rules and government guidance. As a first mover in the industry, 我们工作’s promise to deliver exceptional, innovative and safe 温泉 ces has always been a commitment. Along with its Future of Workplace strategy, heightened cleaning and sanitisation, the implementation of staggered seating and buffer zones to ensure professional distancing in shared 温泉 ces, and behavioural and capacity signage have all helped to ensure a safe and healthy workspace.
With 10 years of global experience leading the co-working industry and being home to two-thirds of Fortune 50 companies, 我们工作 is a trusted partner for businesses such as Microsoft, Slack, Pinterest, KPMG and many more. As 泰国 further opens up and adopts the “new normal”, 我们工作 envisions that there will be a bigger emphasis on collaboration and community, and is ready to support companies in rebuilding 泰国’s economic growth in a post-COVID world.
我们工作 provides members with 温泉 ce, community, and services through physical and virtual offerings. As of 2020 first-quarter close, 我们工作 had 828 locations across 149 cities and 38 countries, as well as 693,000+ total memberships, including global enterprises.
