Upheaval in the office world.
In the business world of the 21st century, companies constantly have to adapt to the new requirements in various markets, which massively increases competitive and productivity pressures. Location and personnel costs increasingly become the focus. In addition, flexibility and digitalization of work are progressing at a previously undreamt-of momentum. Today, work can be done virtually everywhere and at any time of the day – the only thing required is the right infrastructure.
This way, employees can do part of their work from home or external workplaces. Therefore, office time becomes primarily meeting time and desks become shared desks. The same is true for external experts who are brought in only on a project basis. Teamwork often takes place digitally via video conference. In other words: everything becomes flexible – even office work.
Generation Y as an opportunity
Flexibility of work is one of the core requirements of digital natives and the so-called generation Y. They are the first generation having grown up with the Internet, mobile phones and social media from their earliest childhood and have practically no interest any more in rigid hierarchies and work structures. For them, a job must be meaningful and contribute to self-realization. They search for new approaches and solutions – alone or in a team – and independent from any time clock.
Contemporary Work Sciences – applied in practice
Innovative working concepts are the key factor for success in the New World of Work. With the ORBI Tower, they have been translated into the physical reality of a future-oriented office building. This is how a hypermodern office environment was realized, which actively promotes all new forms of internal and external cooperation by means of its structural and technical equipment at any time. Planned and currently developed further together with Professor Michael Bartz from the New World of Work Research Center at the IMC Krems.
