It has been one whole month since we rang in a new year! 2022 brought many changes to the workspace world, including a higher return to physical offices since the pandemic. Where will things go in 2023? We are breaking down three workspace trends to look out for this year:
1. Workspace Options
In 2023, employees continue to look for perfect hybrid, in-office, and remote workspace solutions. According to a McKinsey survey, over half of all American workers participate in some type of remote work. Clearly, flexibility with workspace solutions is not going anywhere in 2023.
At AdvantEdge Workspace, a variety of options are available, from coworking desks to private spaces for larger groups. Meetings rooms are available for rent, and any space is available on a short or long-term basis. Remote workers are eager for fresh solutions to working from home. A shared workspace provides options, amenities, and community for those looking for a more elevated remote/hybrid work experience.
2. Focus on Employee Mental Wellness
In 2023, it is likely that we will see an increased focus on employee mental wellness. Coming out of “survival mode” during the early days of the pandemic, many people are still adjusting to a new normal. Perceptions about how we work, where we work, and when we work have changed dramatically. As we head into another year, employers and workspaces must emphasize mental wellness.

3. Hiring and Retention
From the “Great Resignation” to recent layoffs, no matter what end of the spectrum you are on, hiring and retention processes will be paramount in 2023. Employee attitudes have shifted over the past few years, and employers need to prioritize recruiting and retaining the right people.
To attract top talent, audit your hiring processes. A frictionless, positive experience without unnecessary steps is essential. Additionally, stand out from the crowd with a robust benefits package, focus on work/life balance, community, and great office space like AdvantEdge Workspaces!
To retain top employees, think about what you can offer them. Are there opportunities for growth and learning? Even if a promotion is not feasible, provide avenues for continuing education and networking. Much like the hiring process, ensure your benefits align with the times. Things like continued remote work flexibility and workspace amenities can be crucial in fostering a positive work environment that keeps people satisfied.
