Forced isolation has shown businesses that a significant part of the processes can be transferred to remote mode, the quality of work does not change, said a member of the General Council of “Business Russia” Vladimir Prokhorov. “Most of the office staff of managers, analysts, and so on – may well cope with the task without visiting the offices daily. It is unlikely in the near future, the company will completely refuse from offices, but many employers will review the cost of rent, most likely in favor of coworking” he said.

the rising demand for coworking predicts and CEO of Metrika Investments Alexander Ostrovsky. “However, large holdings will be interested in maintaining the office space, as the work efficiency of employees together is higher than in remote format,” he says. However, in connection with the General downturn in the economy, many developers freeze their projects and the amount of new office space may be reduced.

the Argument against returning to the office may be that entrepreneurs had to spend money on the organization of remote technical equipment, security, the Director of the office real estate Department at Knight Frank Maria Zimina: “this Office will be required as a space where you can discuss tasks with colleagues, meet with clients. And the specific workplace where the work with documents or the execution of some standard operations likely will be reduced”. All this increasingly applies to small and medium business. The owners of large companies have not expressed desire to leave employees on remote work, as control of very large groups is quite difficult.

to Prevent the care offices in the past can psychology. The vast majority of employees are now “very much want to the office” as either morally or from the point of view of the organization conditions of work may not be ready to join in the new format, says managing partner of consulting company “Lamczyk, Krupsky and Partners,” Andrew Krupski. For freelance work can be successfully translated only 10-15% of the staff. “To increase the percentage it is necessary to create mechanisms for the transfer of the atmosphere of the company. Man remains a social being, requiring active communication with colleagues, not only through e-mail,” he said.

Remote work is a worldwide trend, which is already not the first year, says commercial Director of “Profis estate” Christina Limorenko. But now in Russia not so many companies that would transfer some employees to work “from home” without sacrificing performance and ease of internal communications. This part of the staff will remain small, and the transition will be gradualm and will not impact dramatically on the market, he said. For reasons of economy, the company in the coming months only to move to more compact and cheaper offices. In this regard, the office centers of high class have, apparently, change the layout of the premises, giving them a smaller “cutting” or combining the classical offices with flexible where you can quickly expand or reduce the area, as well as coworking. Commercial property class suffer to a lesser extent, as it is usually the former administrative building and houses the office layout, where the areas can be taken not blocks, and room.
