As employees are returning to the office in new and different ways, we know that there is an enormous opportunity for hybrid working inside coworking spaces! Newer workplace demands are emerging for the hybrid workforce and members want to work in different ways.
To solve this problem we are integrating our Hybrid Work Platform directly into OfficeRnD Flex. The Hybrid Workplaces Integration allows operators to give your member companies modern and easy-to-use booking tools for coordinating hybrid schedules and improving member collaboration. Members can book desks and meeting rooms, plan work schedules, and invite teammates, all from within the same portal.
