How Expectations of Hull Office Spaces Have Transitioned Post-Pandemic
The pandemic has seen professional lives shift — the way people work and their expectations have changed for some Hull office spaces. Not only have they seen what is possible in terms of working but how to put their personal values and needs first.
This shift and change in requirements don’t just relate to job-specific perks, but the environment in which a job is expected to be performed.
Pre-Pandemic Hull Offices
Pre-pandemic, the majority of employees were expected to work from an office full-time. This wasn’t specific to Hull offices, but country-wide. Then came the phenomenon of working from home, because people had to. For a lot of people, working from home became the preferred option post-pandemic because of the flexibility it offered.
Now, the office working environment has had to shift in many respects, to encourage people back to them.
Post-Pandemic Hull Offices
When people are looking for office spaces to rent in Hull, they are requiring more modern, stylish, comfortable spaces, as opposed to pre-pandemic where practicality, functionality and efficiency were the largest considerations.
Many offices are now introducing additional working spaces such as sofas and group-working tables to encourage collaboration and a ‘home comfort’ feeling — the decor of many Hull office spaces has adapted to create a more relaxed, homely atmosphere with plants, neutral colours and fun decor.
Danish Buildings and Bayles House are office spaces we currently have available to rent in Hull that demonstrates this shift in demand perfectly. The interior is modern with a sense of character and beautifully fitted kitchens and hallways that feel like a home-away-from-home.
Another example is the proposed Monocle office space to rent in Hull that showcases a very sleek finish with separate seating and collaboration areas.
