future concepts for home office workers



Working the future: How to optimally combine economical, ecological and personal goals in the working environment. The project goal is to generate scenarios, to develop them and put them into effect in terms of a prototypical solution for home office. It is about expanding existing concepts with new ideas but also finding new and speculative ways to organize the future of work.

"According to a study carried out by the Federal Ministry 
of Labor in 2015, almost 40 percent of employees who 
have not yet worked in the home office would like to
have the opportunity."


Increasingly flexible work processes and thus also the work from home gain in importance. They demand a high degree of trust on the part of the employer and offer the employee more spatial and temporal freedom. The resulting employment relationships with changed service agreements present problems for the employee in particular: self-management in the home office requires discipline and personal maturity. 







While the office has its own presence and the need for an exchange with colleagues, there
is no point outside observation and control. The consequences are stress and isolation. According to a Stanford University study, home office workers have fewer career opportunities, even though they work more efficiently. Josephine Hofmann of the Fraunhofer Institute is of the opinion that „one of the biggest problems in the home office is that there are no random conversations“, because this is exactly where real innovations are made, says Kay Mantzel, Experience Manager at Microsoft. Team spirit promotes motivation and is therefore crucial for a good performance.


Within the project, the relationship between Home Office workers and their colleagues is examined. The goal is to connect the worker to the office and to combine the benefits of both work environments. This project should be achieved by creating transparency, supporting communication as well as confidence-building measures. As a result, various micro solutions are visualized.
