Working from home has certain perks, but over the last year many are now growing weary of it due to various factors. Scientific studies, in fact, have recently shown that conducting all of our meetings via a videoconferencing tool is hindering our business relationships, productivity, and well-being.
For this reason, organizations understand the value of face-to-face meetings and the need for their employees to have a break from their at-home work environment so as to connect in person with colleagues, partners, and customers, when it’s safe to do so.
Because a lot of companies have not yet reopened their offices or have reduced their corporate space, many are looking for flexible workspace options where they can send their employees when working from home just isn’t getting the job done. As a result of this growing demand, hotel groups and meeting venues have been optimizing the use of their inventory by offering spaces for solo or small sessions during the day. This includes guest rooms, suites, and common areas.
And that’s exactly where we come in. American Express Global Business Travel (GBT) recently launched a new booking solution called Workspaces that allows individuals and small teams to search for and book locations in their local vicinity that promote productivity. Workspaces is a user-friendly, mobile-responsive booking platform that lets employees book a place for up to 10 people to work or meet for however long they like at a hotel, meeting venue, or other unique working space.
The benefits don’t end there; take a closer look at how Workspaces can benefit your company and employees.
