How to Cater to Residents Who Work from Home
The work from home movement is here to stay. Employers love it for reduced overhead, fewer commercial real estate leases, lower utility bills, and fewer workers comp claims. And employees have come to appreciate a more flexible schedule, reduced wear and tear on their vehicles, and freedom to spend hours they once spent commuting doing something they enjoy. With employees and employers both embracing this shift to the home, new apartment trends arise to cater to them. Here are a few to consider:
Community Coworking Space
A community coworking space is convenient for employees who need a break from their apartment, but don’t want to commute to another location. Equipped with strong WiFi, desks, printers, and other office essentials, a coworking space will make your community stand out and appear modern. To add extra flair, invest in standing desks, a coffee machine, and inspirational wall art.
Built-in desks are convenient and stylish for the work-from-home employee. Not only will it save them a trip to IKEA, but also time spent building and setting it up.
Many work from home employees receive packages from their jobs, whether it be product samples, collateral, or office supplies. In many of these scenarios, they are responsible for these items and can’t risk theft or damage. Therefore, package lockers come in very handy.
Without a commute, many people who work from home find themselves in their apartment all day. While this has its perks, residents may be in need of fresh air and a change of scenery. A private patio or balcony is ideal for the at-home worker because it gives them a space to unwind, relax, and escape from their daily to-do list.
