◆ The executing rate of remote work in Tokyo is 53.1% and on a declining trend. Some companies have discontinued remote work.
According to a questionnaire survey by the Tokyo Chamber of Commerce and Industry (*1), the number of companies that apply remote work is on the decline trend compared with May and June in 2020, and one out of about five companies is currently discontinuing remote work although it was temporarily applied. Remote work, which rapidly became common during the COVID-19 pandemic, has diversified ways of working and forms of offices more than ever.
◆ Issues of communication resulting from remote work: what future ways of working require
Although “difficulties in contact and communication” with persons involved within and outside a company is cited as an issue related to remote work (*2), about 70% of people expressed a desire to maintain remote work arrangements even after the pandemic, representing a strong majority of the employees surveyed (*3).
◆ Data-driven office design services aiming at comprehensive solutions to issues related to ways of working
Since its founding in 2013, the Company has taken on the challenge of realizing ideal ways of working and forms of offices through its measures to foster corporate culture and communication among employees with various nationalities and job types in a process where the number of employees has grown from three to about 600 through its IPO and M&A with five companies. Taking advantage of such know-how to form an organization, RENOSY WORK has been launched to support comprehensive solutions for issues related to ways of working ranging from organization/system design to office design of companies that strive for value creation via innovation.

◆ Event/workshop inviting guests to discuss the future ways of working together
Issues related to ways of working vary among companies.

◆ Start of approaches to scientifically update our office in collaboration with CLAS
CLAS, which provides furniture/appliances subscription services, and RENOSY WORK are collaborating to start approaches to scientifically update the office at our “GA FUTURE LAB” office, which accommodates a hybrid way of working that combines remote work and office work styles. By making use of subscription service office furniture from CLAS, we aim to establish a system where we select the optimum office furniture as needed on the basis of the utilization situation and the input of employees. At the GA FUTURE LAB, we are planning to replace the furniture for the first time in around June 2021.
◆ CLAS “Office Space Subscription Service
CLAS’s “Office subscription service” provides a high degree of flexibility in the creation of office space, with a monthly fee of 25,000 yen for an office with 10 users, and returnable and exchangeable after 3 months. The greatest merit of this service is that the furniture can be used for only the monthly rental fee and delivery and installation fee, making it possible to flexibly change the operation policy of the office space while greatly reducing the initial installation cost. The minimum term of use is only 3 months, and there is no cost for planning, etc. CLAS designers will select and layout the most suitable furniture for you.
Whether you are relocating your office, increasing or decreasing the floor space, changing the layout, establishing a new decentralized office, or opening a coworking space or shared office, CLAS can flexibly respond to any situation and make it easier for you to use office furniture. The use of high-quality, easy-to-use office furniture can also improve productivity.
