People have long intertwined work and community. Historically, people worked in the communities in which they lived. Mixed-use city centers formed bustling ecosystems. Globalization has supplanted these ecosystems, causing businesses to seek opportunities overseas and transcend geographical boundaries. Those from the suburbs would commute to cities to work. Businesses seek customers overseas from across the globe rather than domestically, as in the past.
In recent years, the mass adoption of hybrid working reinforced the importance of the role of a community as the basis for human connection, which is rooted in our evolutionary need to be together. As a result, community is at the heart of civilization and a crucial attribute to happiness. Studies have also shown that a lack of social connection may lead to poor quality of life or potential health and wellness issues. Amenities such as parks and leisure venues, green parks, and coffee shops are ways in which community collisions develop in a manner that shapes the community, as in a workplace.
Flexible Offices as a Preferred Choice
A flexible workspace is one of the prevalent ways to establish a sense of community effectively. Compass Offices is one of Asia Pacific’s fastest-growing providers of flexible workspaces for corporates and business professionals, growing startups, enterprise teams, and international conglomerates. Since 2009, our global support teams have provided our clients with innovative, bespoke, business-ready workplace and professional services that facilitate growth in today’s changing risk environment. One of the major cities we operate in is Manila, the capital of the Philippines.
Manila is among the most populous and fastest-growing cities in Southeast Asia. The city is known for its cost efficiency, competitive rates for a capable labor force, and office space rental. It is home to various regional and international businesses. It is a popular location for Business process outsourcing (BPO) that utilizes subcontractors and third-party vendors to conduct various parts of a business operation. In retrospect, BPO was rooted in multi-national manufacturing companies in the supply chain management processes. It has since revolutionized to include sectors such as the services industries, as in the case of customer services and support.
