The Other Side of the Coin

Certainly, the pandemic has changed the way companies operate but we are finally going back to being face-to-face, which is why many people have chosen to have a workspace: for the sake of their team.

The other side of the coin.

During the pandemic we have known and experienced the different nontraditional models for working; for example, remote and hybrid. At the beginning, it seemed like a dream come true to work from home. Now, we can say that this model has witnessed some failures, such as the presence of constant noise, low work performance, distractions and emotional exhaustion. Sometimes, employees and associates have been frustrated by not having the necessary tools to work from home.

"At the end of the day, being able to have your colleagues next to you to chat, brainstorm and support each other are things that they didn't count on when they worked remotely and that now have helped them achieve their goals as a company," shares Hugo Garduño, co-founder of Verqor, Around's client since May 2021.

A new year, a new beginning.

That is why many people have chosen, for the good of their team, to have a workspace where each member can develop and the company can create its own culture.

Some advantages that can be found in this model are:

Mental health. This is probably the most important factor. Excessive isolation can cause mental exhaustion, depression and anxiety, among others.

Sense of belonging. Being in the same space makes it much easier to coexist with new members. The employee can easily learn the dynamics and roles of the team in a physical space.

An equipped office: A space with good lighting, no noise, good internet and comfort makes work much more productive and easier to perform. This cannot be guaranteed when working at home.

This is what companies like Around help others achieve. We want to accompany them in this process, helping teams to create and to grow.
