Warsaw office market
In the new, dynamically changing reality, the changes are also impacting gastronomy targeting office workers. It seems that the home office and other hybrid systems of employment, necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, became a permanent fixture of Poland’s labor market.
What is happening, then, to gastronomy operating within Warsaw skyscrapers? How did it survive the last three years? Is it still growing - and if so, under what formula? What did the mixed use investments bring to the table? What will happen to gastronomy in the coming years?
We have decided to take a closer look at three of Warsaw’s office zones: City Center, Mokotów and al. Jerozolimskie, visiting the same buildings that we have described in our 2019 “Eating in office buildings” report, as well as new office buildings that entered the market during pandemic. A comparative analysis of the data confirmed the thesis about changes taking place. We welcome you to become familiar with the changes.
The report also contains fragments of a Colliers' study into the hybrid work models, number of people still working under the stationary model and their expectations towards office buildings, including the gastronomic offer.
The COVID-19 pandemic has revolutionized the current work model - employees were forced to abandon their workplaces and learn to work from home practically overnight.
Due to the pandemic-related restrictions, for a long time the home office was the only available mode of work, leading to gradual, loosening of the correlation between work and the office.
It bears noting that while before the pandemic remote work had been perceived as a benefit, nowadays it has become a norm that the employees don’t want to forgot. According to Colliers’ studies, the preferred scope of remote work has doubled over the pandemic - from 1.4 day a week before to 2.9 days now.
Furthermore, 43% of respondents have claimed to prefer the hybrid mode of work and 40% preferred primarily or fully remote mode of work.
The question is therefore no longer about whether a company offers a home office option, but rather to what extent it does. The attractiveness of companies refusing to offer even the slightest scope of remote work has plummeted, leading numerous organizations to decide to retain the hybrid models developed during the pandemic, merging remote and office work.
