Employees Don’t Want an Office That’s Like ‘Rush Hour’

October 12, 2023

Optimizing spaces for a hybrid workforce is the key issue.

Rob Gilman, Partner & Chair of Anchin’s Real Estate Services Practice, tells that companies using the two days in the office model with rotating days require half their current space.

“Many companies are still unsure how much space to take if workers are 3+ days in the office but want to take less space than they would have in the past. Most feel they can always add space, even if not on the same floor,” he said. “They prefer not to overspend.”

Gilman said companies prefer the Class A space over Class B. Rents are down and feel the amenities are an attraction to talent, even if on a hybrid model.
