Why this white paper?

The question of the ideal office did not arise with the Covid-19 pandemic, nor with the subsequent containment in many countries. For several years now, the issues of quality of life at work, innovation, mobility or attracting and retaining talent have led to thinking about the accessibility, layout and equipment of office buildings.

However, the health crisis, and with it the massive and accelerated use of teleworking, have not only highlighted the need for exchanges between employees and their expectations in terms of comfort and high-performance equipment, but have also highlighted the disruptions that are taking place in terms of working arrangements and the places where work is carried out.

So we asked ourselves what, in today’s fast-changing world of work, makes up the DNA of the ideal office and what the “new” expectations of users are.

How did we proceed?

In collaboration with BureauxLocaux, we interviewed 350 active professionals looking for office among BureauxLocaux subscribers. We then analysed their feedback and cross-checked our results with the analysis of experts we interviewed.

Alain d’Iribarne (Actineo Observatory), Jean-Christophe Beau (My Mental Energy) and Olivier Saguez (Saguez & Partners), joined us in our investigation to shed light on their vision of the ideal office.
