Because the office as you know it, is dead.
Fosbury & Sons is an antidote to the office of the past. The way most offices are organised doesn’t correspond to the needs of today’s and the upcoming generation. It’s outdated and rooted in the rigid mentality and the grey, traditional work atmosphere of the 60’s. With nearly three hours lost each day to office-related interruptions and distractions, a traditional office space is no longer considered the most productive and those lost hours cost businesses over millions each year.
International research points out that a significant shift is appearing in the labour market. Increasing employee fatigue and cases of burnout have placed traditional ways of working under the microscope. For the first time in history, the global workplace includes five generations working side-by-side. One-size-fits-all is no longer applicable. Moreover, a motivating habitat where we feel comfortable and inspired increases levels of focus and creativity. We no longer expect a table and a chair, but rather a complete experience that allows us to perform at our best. 78% of millennials see workspace quality as a deciding factor when choosing an employer, and about the same amount would trade other benefits for a better workspace.
Digital transformation allows us to work from anywhere, anytime. You can serve your clients in New York or from a beach in Bali. We no longer need a grey, traditional atmosphere or the rigid mentality of the previous century.
The demand for a different kind of workspace is not limited to freelancers or start-ups. It may have started as a solution for the flexible needs of beginning companies or the loneliness of freelancers, but today, large multinational corporations are including a more extensive selection of workspaces in their portfolio. Not only is delocalising part of their team an answer to a damning mobility issue, but working alongside diverse individuals from different companies encourages collaboration, which results in innovation.
Fosbury & Sons is based on the digital nomad life, the strength of your daily workspace quality, general life quality and the basic need of people to belong to a group.
Well-being is the new welfare.
We are here to make a difference in your work and quality of life. We've created a new kind of workplace, one that values the humanity of the people within its walls. But, more than that we wanted to create a space that no longer catered to an outdated view of work. Work can be more than a monthly paycheque, than the food it brings to our table, than the sponsor of our basic needs and our escapism. With Fosbury & Sons—an office for the employee, for the individual, for the start-up, for the entrepreneur, and for the company both large and small—we want to create a renaissance of work. A place to collaborate, to celebrate, and to learn from one another; a place where you can come together, and a place to be apart.
In an office that values you and the work you do, who could you be?
The office is dead. Long live the office.
Our company name, Fosbury & Sons, is a tribute to Dick Fosbury, who changed the world of high jump competition. Like Mr Fosbury, we aim to rethink something that is conventional. How can we redesign our work environment to better suit the needs of today’s generation? How do we create harmony between life and work in our ever-evolving social landscape?
ABOUT MR. FOSBURY
Our company name, Fosbury & Sons, is a tribute to Mr. Dick Fosbury, who changed the world of high jump competition. As a high school student, Fosbury had trouble with the conventional high jump straddle method and failed to meet the 1,5 m requirement for his track team. Fosbury was determined, though and he continued to tinker with his approach until he developed one that suited his body. A technique that would become the dominant style when he set a new Olympic record in 1968 at 2,24 m—it was named the ‘Fosbury Flop’.
