Scottish workspaces set for 'reimagining', with connectivity top priority

Strong digital connectivity is likely to be the main driver of the workspace of the future, as opposed to physical location, according to an influential study of the Scottish business sector.

More than 500 businesses were last month quizzed about their future workspace priorities as part of the Addleshaw Goddard Scottish Business Monitor, produced in partnership with the Fraser of Allander Institute at the University of Strathclyde.

Internet and digital connectivity would be the main priority for 95 per cent of respondents compared to 40 per cent who cited strong public transport links and 15 per cent who favoured a city-centre location.
