Not long ago, we were still talking about teleworking and new flexible offices as emerging trends, and today they are already a reality. \u00a0The emergence of the pandemic worldwide and the need to confine the population have led to a cultural and organizational change in companies such as we had not known before. Overnight, and without any preparation in most cases, companies were forced to send their staff to telecommute and adopt new flexible and remote working relationships. New reality: teleworking and new offices In reality, these changes were already there, but the pandemic has accelerated them.\u00a0Indeed, years ago we began to talk about the VUCA environment;\u00a0of a different world as a result of the unstoppable advance of information and communication technologies, and of the globalization of relationships. We live in an interconnected world, in which distances and schedules were already losing relevance.\u00a0But above all, we were beginning to live in a new paradigm in which change was permanent and the tangible was being replaced by the intangible: ideas, knowledge, speed and flexibility were becoming the sustainable competitive advantages of this new it was. Change had become a constant, and the fundamental values \u200b\u200bto compete \/ survive in this new global environment are called dynamism, innovation, creativity, knowledge, flexibility, mobility, adaptability, learning, continuous improvement and speed. Teleworking, one of the most significant changes, but not the only one Among the most important changes in what the work itself is, it is worth highlighting: \tGreater doses of\u00a0flexibility\u00a0and mobility - "work where and when you want." \tNew\u00a0corporate\u00a0cultures, more transparent, innovative and horizontal, and a different leadership style, with differential attributes such as communication, flexibility and empowerment. \tGreater prominence of\u00a0people\u00a0and their physical and emotional well-being. \tImplementation of\u00a0agile methodologies, which facilitate quick responses and generally favor innovation processes. Scrum, agile,\u00a0kanban\u00a0\u2026\u00a0These are some of the agile work methodologies that emerged in the world of computing in the mid-eighties and early nineties, and that today have already been introduced in all types of companies.\u00a0They offer a way to respond to the dizzying pace of change in this society of hyper connectivity and shared knowledge.\u00a0 What the pandemic has done is accelerate these changes that had already been introduced in our lives and ways of working, and especially the first, teleworking that has come to stay. Teleworking has been one of the great changes that the Covid19 pandemic has imposed on our lives.\u00a0Before the outbreak of this health crisis, the number of companies with employees teleworking in Spain\u00a0was 5% compared to 34% in May.\u00a0The increase in these figures led the Government to work on a Telework Law. 95% of workers would like to continue teleworking partially As published by\u00a0RRHHDigital\u00a0,\u00a0Alares\u00a0and\u00a0Fundaci\u00f3n Alares\u00a0have taken stock of how companies and the people who work in them see this modality and what changes will be experienced this year.\u00a086% of companies value business experience\u00a0in relation to\u00a0teleworking as "good" and "very good" and 95% of workers would like to continue teleworking.\u00a0\u00a0 Teleworking creates stress In general, 50% of companies say that teleworking has increased competitiveness, but 70% have not established procedures to measure the productivity of remote work. According to this article, almost all experts agree that, while new forms of teleworking are being implemented, problems of anxiety, stress, fear, phobias, family and couple related issues are growing. 58% of companies will continue with the teleworking modality 58% of the companies affirm in the aforementioned study that they will continue with the teleworking modality once the current situation is normalized.\u00a0Eighteen percent will carry it out at least two days a week;\u00a014% continuously except for occasions that require physical presence, and 11% will allow it one day a week.\u00a0 The report on teleworking carried out by Fundaci\u00f3n\u00a0Alares\u00a0shows that the main challenges that male and female employees have had to face have been general anxiety due to the impact of the situation (15%), followed by\u00a0social isolation\u00a0(14%) and the difficulty to maintain a regular schedule (14%).\u00a0Despite the stress, the most significant data is that 95% would like to continue teleworking to a greater or lesser extent, with\u00a0two days a week being the highlight (39%). Telecommuting?\u00a0We want to go back to the office\u00a0 For all these reasons,\u00a0workers do not want to give up their newly acquired job flexibility but also not to meeting up with others.\u00a0Employees want to go back to the office.\u00a0The question is: if I go to the office when I want and mainly to socialize, has the traditional concept of the office become obsolete?\u00a0What should new workspaces look like to attract a much more flexible workforce?\u00a0 The majority bet is to move towards a hybrid system, which makes work at home compatible with offices or with working from "the third space". Hybrid model, teleworking and face-to-face, and offices to socialize The office is not going away.\u00a0So what about this widespread commitment to remote work?\u00a0The answer seems clear: The future of work and workspaces is hybrid. Does any type of office work?\u00a0Certainly not.\u00a0In fact, companies are already designing and implementing spaces that are quite different from those before the pandemic.\u00a0The alternative, today more than ever, are shared non-territorial positions in which each space belongs to everyone. The office\u00a0is the\u00a0connection point of the workforce\u00a0and the soul of the companies;\u00a0it is the place where things happen.\u00a0Its function today is socialization, and this has clear benefits in terms of motivation, communication, cooperation and well-being of people.\u00a0In this sense, the offices represent an essential asset for the productivity of the companies.
