Workplaces Redefined: What is a Workplace?

Workplaces trends


What is a workplace?

While private offices can promote better concentration, open spaces encourage communication and interaction. So how can their strengths be combined to provide an ideal work environment? The answer is the workplace. What is meant by the term workplace?

This alternative to traditional work space design is a way to provide your employees with a stimulating and innovative environment. The workplace is an essential place where professionals can meet and learn from one another.

The differences between work space and workplace

The “work space” has a more traditional format to refer to a designated work space.

It is usually located in a partitioned room where an individual workstation (with a table and a chair) is assigned to each employee of a company.

A “workplace” refers to collaborative work spaces. 

The workplace combines private offices and common spaces (meeting rooms, conference rooms, coworking spaces, etc.) shared by several companies under one roof. It places greater emphasis on communication and interaction and has established itself in recent years as a very popular working environment.

What are the advantages of being in a workplace?

If you are looking for commercial space to rent in Mauritius, workplaces are a convenient and less costly option. They offer many benefits to growing start-ups and well-established multinationals alike, including:

  1. A work-friendly environment: Workplaces offer greater flexibility to employees, enabling them to choose where to work (open space, coworking space or separate office). They also keep away the distractions from working from home without preventing interaction with colleagues. With such a dynamic and stimulating work environment, employees will surely enjoy working at the office.
  2. Greater productivity: People working in shared spaces exchange information faster, hold meetings on the fly and collaborate effectively. The result is faster decision-making, which translates into higher productivity and better work quality within the company.
  3. A professional network: Collaborative work spaces are places for meetings and networking. Employees can access the common areas of buildings to network with people working for other companies and even be inspired by ideas and innovations from people outside their network. A key benefit for your company!
