The Floating Method – Industry Trends for December


Today’s new normal has seen the implementation of new, innovative approaches in the work environment. 

From hybrid work schedules, to decentralized satellite offices, to even allowing team members to work entirely from a remote capacity, we’ve seen it all. 

Now though, Preferred Office Network has seen a new trend in day-to-day work. 

This trend, which has been identified through increase in client demand, is what we like to call, “the floating method. 

While some companies can still flourish with team members working from an entirely remote capacity, others struggle in the absence of physical collaboration. 

The floating method allows businesses and companies of all sizes to place teams in reduced capacity workspaces that are both safe and socially distanced. 

Simply put, a floating method is used when a company leases a workspace, but only half of their team occupies the space at any given time – while the other half of the team works remotely. 

For example, if you have a team of 20 employees, you can choose a workspace that can house up to half of your team at once. 

Instead of all 20 team members accessing the space at once, individuals can tailor their schedules based around the ongoing capacity of the workspace. 

This presents an ideal balance between working from home and working from the office. 

Given that you’re providing space for just half of your team, the floating method is cost efficient, private, and allows for 24/7 dedicated access. 

PON iproud to provide new, flexible solutions that can be positioned by our members to accommodate the ever-changing demands of today. 

On our end, we are executing the floating method to help various clients now, and in the future.
