organize the permanent movement of the company

The flexible office appeared in the vocabulary of HR and has not left it since the deconfinement. The 35 hours, teleworking, Web technologies that allow remote collaboration create conditions to profoundly transform work habits in offices.

Taking the car or subway to “come to the office” has become an option when you can do the same day’s work at home. Today, we would like to travel to meet, and no longer lock ourselves in an office closed by walls. As a result, in open offices, we observe that the number of occupied workstations varies from one day to the next, that meeting rooms are sometimes invaded. This more empowered organization of work, which has lost its format, requires new tools to be able to be planned and offer everyone the best experience possible.

The spatial organization of workspaces is being affected. General services and corporate real estate are adapting or anticipating a more fluid organization that is inventing new codes of behavior. It is in these changes that Sharvy, a start-up that was born in 2018, found its field of expression. It can respond to a variety of projects: from the management of the sanitary template to “transitory” periods of work in a busy place, to the profound transformation of face-to-face uses with flex-office…

“Sharvy is an app that allows self-service organization of shared workspaces. It aims to optimize the comfort of employees by appealing to their autonomy. In fact, we have responded to several use cases: from managing social distancing for almost two years, to practical implementation of flex office or temporary management of workspaces for a working period…”, explains Stéphane Seigneurin, CEO of Sharvy. “Sharvy gives more space for employee autonomy. It supports organizations in implementing permanent agility. »

Managing meters during the health crisis period…

Originally? The COVID health crisis, which forced companies to take into account the occupancy rates of workspaces, when returning to the employer’s location.

Sharvy expands its application in a few weeks around its expertise in optimizing parking spaces. It is developing a function dedicated to the offices. The bespoke, ready-to-use, easy-to-deploy application was born in response to an exceptional situation. Its early adopters are called Merck Laboratories, or Nestlé…

Making a plan for occupancy of the premises readable while working… Months passed, and returning to the office was not so easy… Above all because in some employers, however, the premises could change their face, with changes, remodeling or consolidation works of the site carried out during the health crisis. They offered a return to “normal” in spaces that we found to be a little, even a lot, altered. Not to mention that, in some cases, the work continued… This is the case of a world leader in flooring in La Défense…

During the squatted work phase, workspaces move as locations evolve and some become inaccessible. Having an app like Sharvy allows you to book your office and know where to land before you even arrive. Very useful when last week’s office no longer exists, the partitions have fallen, the electricity is no longer connected there… Faced with the dreaded chaos, the HR department and general services are offering employees an application that allows them to anticipate where will be able to work without wasting time, without hassle, having access to a fully functional office.

Facilitating the future of the company: business agility, employee autonomy

A new corporate pact was accelerated by the health crisis. On the one hand, employees are in favor of teleworking, the 4-day week, and on the other, companies are reducing their m2 and reorganizing floors. Both parties gained an advantage, more autonomy on the one hand, lower real estate costs on the other.

The trend is well defined, with a questioning of the classic spatial organization, of the “one person, one office” scheme, the literature on the topic of organizations and real estate offices demonstrates this abundantly. Companies – in any case already in large groups – are moving, as part of their workspace redesign projects, to a ratio of 0.8 office/employee, or even 0.6…
