Takeaways from discussion on the new approach to office spaces

On May 14th the panel of experts moderated by Andrius Francas, SCCL Board Member and Partner at Alliance for Recruitment. discussed the new approach to office spaces in a post-pandemic future. According to the speakers, the key is to find a mutually beneficial agreement between a landlord and a tenant in terms of costs, safety and sustainability. In a longer perspective, open-plan workplaces are likely to be transformed into smaller private offices. Working from home in post-Covid times should no longer be a benefit, but a natural part of the system - therefore, experts expect to see an increased combination of having both fixed and flexible office spaces. Last, but not least, the employers should remember that a simple question like „How do you feel?“ is of great importance to the employees‘ emotional health – both those returning to the offices and those who choose to continue working from home.

Swedish export industry heavily hit by Corona

Every third Swedish export company expects to reduce the number of employees in Sweden in the next six months, according to the state-owned company Swedish Export Credit Corporation (SEK). At the same time, only one of ten exporting companies believe they will terminate the staff abroad. However, companies are planning to reduce new recruitments abroad. In autumn 2019, 26% of companies planned to increase the number of employees abroad, a proportion that has now fallen to 7%. "The situation is extremely serious, but when the economy turns, the green change can take off. Financing climate-smart technologies and sustainable solutions is an important part of working towards the growth of sustainable exports", according to Catharina Henriksson, Press & Public Affiars Officer at SEK.
