“A different office life” – a study about the changed office landscape

17 January 2024

How do larger organisations in Sweden relate to the new office life with increased remote work? And which strategies are they applying?

Together with researcher Christina Bodin Danielsson, Associate Professor of Architecture at KTH Royal Institute of Technology we release the report; Ett annat kontorsliv (A different office life). With this report, we aim to explore how organisations in Sweden are adapting to the evolving landscape of remote work in their new office environments.

“The way people use the office in their work has changed dramatically in recent years, making it more challenging to plan and foresee which office strategies will be successful in the future. At Areim, we felt a need, both internally and in dialogue with our customers, to better understand this new landscape. With this report, we aim to provide a deeper understanding of various office solutions, hoping it can assist in the decision-making process,” says Per Sallmén, Asset Manager, at Areim.

The study is grounded in surveys and in-depth interviews conducted with a strategically selected group of large national and international companies and organisations in the Stockholm area, each employing more than 500 individuals.

Previous studies on the impact of hybrid work in office settings often adopt the perspectives of either employees or management. To offer a distinctive and more accurate viewpoint, our study instead sought insights from facility managers or other individuals responsible for overseeing office-related matters within the organisations.
