In the last five years, the workplace has seen a massive switch in working patterns to agile working and Frem have been at the forefront of shaping and developing that initiative. It’s about creating spaces where people aren’t necessarily sitting at a desk but in a meeting pod or on a sofa.
The trend for open plan offices and how it was better for collaboration, failed to consider to two key factors. The first was efficiency. If people surround you, you will get distracted. But more importantly, our wellbeing, with many studies now showing that the noise in open plan offices is detrimental to workers’ health, stress levels and ability to concentrate.
Frem’s vision of a modern workspace is constantly evolving as a new generation enters the workforce with new ideas and needs.
