DLF's Vision: Transforming Workspaces into Lifestyle Hubs
The pandemic saw remote work culture become normative and begin to change the way people worked. DLF Offices has always set standards in the real estate industry and the commercial real estate sector is no different. We thus embarked on a mission to reshape the way Indians work to enhance productivity and increase the social and commercial impact of workplaces. With our state-of-the-art office spaces, we aim to change the way India works. Our office spaces have holistic amenities making them more than just a place to work, but rather a place where you bond with your colleagues, play, party, and celebrate life to the fullest. We empower you to make your workplace more than just a cubicle and a meeting room, we make sure that you call your office a home away from home.
Changing the Landscape of Workplaces
The COVID-19 pandemic altered the norm of workplaces. Remote work became the new normal, and employees found themselves trading office cubicles for home office setups. While remote work offered flexibility, it also came with its own novel challenges. Isolation blurred work-life boundaries, and the absence of face-to-face interactions began taking a toll on mental health and productivity. We at DLF recognised these hurdles and took it upon ourselves to create office spaces that encouraged employees to transition towards working from the office while promoting a good work-life balance with state-of-the-art amenities within our workplaces.
How DLF offices is harbouring the future of workplaces beginning with Chennai
The historic city of Chennai was one of the first few that embraced the IT wave in India. Chennai and DLF have been partners in growth for more than a decade, and together they have made the city the epicentre of the IT industry. DLF's office spaces are not just the typical office spaces for rent. We create vibrant and holistic ecosystems that are specifically designed to improve the overall workplace experience while enhancing employee productivity and promoting an ideal work-life balance. These factors have helped DLF be at the helm of the return to office trend which has seen 95% of the population opt for working from their offices.
Here are some key factors that have helped us usher in this change.
The world-class amenities that DLF offices provide are the discerning factor and what sets us apart from the rest. Our holistic office spaces cater to every need and demand of the employee and empower them to increase their productivity and maintain a healthy work-life balance. DLF office spaces offer employees something entirely novel, we offer employees a place where they work and indulge in recreational activities, like sports, yoga, and socialisation, and enjoy a wide range of delectable cuisines. These factors make employees engage and interact with each other beyond their professional spheres and extend to calling each other family rather than just colleagues and call their workplace a home away from home rather than just an office.
We at DLF value the importance of human connection and understand its relationship with employee productivity. We have thus designed our office spaces in such a way that they foster a sense of community and simultaneously provide opportunities for networking and professional growth. Regularly scheduled events, workshops, and networking sessions bring people together and create a sense of togetherness. Such initiatives that foster interaction have proven to be beneficial for overall employee productivity and growth as per the "Reimagining Work: New Imperatives for the Next Normal" report by Deloitte.
DLF Offices crucially emphasises employee well-being and we have thus taken numerous steps in that direction. With the installation of a world-class MERV-14 air filtres, 24x7 medical centre with an ambulance facility, an exclusive fire station equipped with a 60-metre high Bronto skylift and a dedicated fire-fighting team. We have always been known to go the extra mile and in order to live up to our reputation, DLF Offices spaces also have a day-care centre which allows parents to work in peace being assured that their children are within close proximity and are well taken care of. These measures prove DLF's commitment to making workplaces safer for their employees as per the study done by The Conference Board about the re-opening of workplaces, which talks about the least looked after aspects being providing childcare measures for workers and implementing safety measures.
DLF's unique manner of developing top-notch office spaces is more than just a reaction to the unfortunate effects of the pandemic. It is a blueprint that sets the standard for the manner in which India works. We are setting the norm for cutting-edge working environments establishing vivid workplaces that encourage a sense of togetherness and well-being while fostering work-life balance and enhancing employee productivity. DLF's approach is a testament to our dedication to the well-being and success of our tenants. It's not just about the office. It's about fostering a sense of belonging, growth, and opportunity. Our novel approach is a demonstration of our commitment towards the employees.
