Warsaw, 10th of March 2020 - Alina Nowak, Undersecretary of State in the Ministry of Family Labor and Social Policy, met with the representatives of the Association of Business Service Leaders (ABSL): Jolanta Jaworska, Vice-President Advocacy Public Affairs & Regulatory, Marcin Nowak, Head of ABSL Management Board and Wioletta Bobryk, Legal & Compliance Director.
2019 was for ABSL a time of great events and numerous initiatives. We have summarized all our activities and achievements in the past year and made predictions for 2020.
Office space – until recently was a place that was limited to an office desk, a chair and possibly a small kitchen, where one could brew coffee ‘on the go’. Relaxation was not an option, because the line to the coffee machine was too long. And now? Some of us use assigned desks, others from time to time prefer the buzz of a communal space, where we have breakfast and lunch, some willingly use the room used to work in focus, a small park next to an office building or… their own couch.
Changes in the Polish office sector happen not only from a quantitative aspect but in qualitative terms as well. There is growing interest in multi-functional projects on the market. The share of flex space, which is an interesting option for large tenants is also increasing.
JLL and Skanska’s office unit have jointly analysed the preferences of employees of modern offices in Poland. As a result, the five personalities and styles of work identified have different needs and expectations of the office space. The conclusions of the “Diversity in the workplace“ report will greatly improve employers’ understanding of these differences. In addition, they will also learn what factors build the value of the workplace in the eyes of their diverse teams.
