Future Workplaces

The world of work is in a time of change. Work today is more networked, more creative – and more complex. Topics such as digital transformation, work-life blending, and Work 4.0 are matters for everyone. Yet despite the intense pace of progress in digitalisation and flexibilisation, the office still remains a key element in the professional life of tomorrow. But what will the workplace of tomorrow look like? What demands will it bring? Companies, architects, property developers, office planners and outfitters must adjust to the needs of the up-and-coming generations of workers. With our focus on the “Future of the Worlds of Work”, we want to take a fundamental look at the questions surrounding a modern world of work.

Trendguide I

In our first trend guide ‘The Implicit Office’, we have, together with the Zukunftsinstitut, outlined the change from the traditional place of work to the office of the future as a smart and flexible work space. The workplaces of the future will promote creativity, exchange of ideas and lifelong learning, with a strong analogue and digital network as a prerequisite. Rooms should encourage learning, relaxation, concentration, brainstorming and communication. Aspects like community, health, mobility and access to services that facilitate everyday life will add to this ‘working environment’. Individual staff members can mix and match these elements like modules according to their own preferences, whichever they find most relevant and supportive. You can download the first trend guide here, free of charge.

Trendguide II

Current economic developments are marked by legal, social and functional requirements of considerable complexity. In order to meet the challenges ahead, different skills, working methods and perspectives are needed in a team. A variety of working environments will be needed to cater for this. Various demands can be met by providing a combination of an open-plan office with smaller units for concentrated work and shared spaces for meetings, personal communication and recreation. Contemporary working environments, where staff members meet eye to eye and discover a taste for cooperation, form the perfect conditions for innovation and creativity. And it is equally important to provide free space. This can be seen in the way the office concept is dealt with and in the management of the innovation process. SIGNA, one of Europe’s biggest property developers, constantly addresses the needs of the future working environment to meet its demands and expectations. Against this backdrop, our new trend guide “From implicit to implementation. Rethinking of workspaces.” deals with the practical subject of implementing modern, convertible and flexible office designs. You can download the current trend guide here, free of charge.

SIGNA Trend Talk on 23 October 2018“Office 4.0 – From Implicit to Implementation”

Global, flexible, digital – the fourth industrial revolution is not only changing entire industries, it is also turning the working world upside down.

When we think about the office of tomorrow, it is not just about designing buildings, it is about providing the best possible support for the future world of work at companies. These and other exciting topics were discussed on the occasion of the second SIGNA Trend Talk on the topic of the future worlds of work:

René Benko, founder of the SIGNA Group
Nicole Srock.Stanley, CEO & founder of the dan pearlman Group
The talk was moderated by Corinna Milborn, Information Director of the ProSiebenSat.1 PULS4 broadcasting group.

“We see our mission as developers not only in the simple provision of high-quality rental space. We offer our customers the optimal interaction between office space and the significant requirements demanded by the new working worlds." René Benko

“Globalisation and digitalisation are changing our world and affecting how we live and work. When we talk about work-life blending, what we are referring to is that the separation of work and leisure time has been lifted. A new way of working also requires new perspectives on the topic of the ‘future of work’." Nicole Srock.
