How to flex while choosing the best office amenities

Succeeding with flex space is about more than winning the office amenities arms race.

The transition to flex should be done proactively with an eye toward the future, not reactively in response to lingering COVID hesitation and other transitory concerns. With regard to both personnel and other physical resources, there is clearly a divergence between what companies need right now (as employees trickle back into the office) and what they’ll need in several years when and if the pandemic situation stabilizes.  
That’s the great thing about flex space, though: it flexes with you, providing much-needed capacity to make adjustments as circumstances change. Here are some considerations that will help you maximize the space’s many benefits.


  • Establish flex space standards and eligibility criteria 
  • Take a fresh look at which employees can succeed with a hybrid work schedule and how many will require access to flex space. 
  • Reassess real estate footprint 
  • Consider how much space is ultimately required to support this workforce, where this space can be located or relocated, and how it fosters desired outcomes for collaboration, productivity, and culture. 

Property Managers: 

  • Help businesses implement hybrid work leasing strategies 
  • Access to flex office space can be offered in addition to long-term leases. 
  • Identify the best office amenities critical to full flex space support 
  • The best office amenities for some teams, access to on-site facilities (like gyms and wellness facilities) will be critical, but others may be more focused on technology and transportation concerns. 
  • Succeeding with flex space is about more than winning the office amenities arms race. It’s about creating a customizable environment that responds to business needs and helps employees maintain harmony between work, life, and everything else.
