g-f(2)295 The big picture of the digital age (5/26/2021), MIT SMR, Why Companies Should Adopt a Hub-and-Spoke Work Model Post-Pandemic.




Extra-condensed knowledge


Many organizations believe it’s time to reinvent the working environment with a middle ground between packed offices and the isolation of working at home: the hub-and-spoke office model. 
  • This setup — in which a company operates a centralized main office (hub) with more localized satellite offices (spokes) — is a fundamental driver of workspace mobility.  
    • Offering an attractive yet accessible hybrid of both home and office work, the model increases the options and flexibility for employees by including the home as an essential spoke.
  • Search for Common Ground, a nonprofit with more than 500 employees globally, has operated under the hub-and-spoke model since 2018. 
    • This approach enabled the organization to reduce its office space by 65% and optimize the employee experience through the modernization of its communication tools, design, and technology. 
    • Similar benefits were experienced by MotoRefi, a consumer refinance company based in Washington, D.C., with spokes spread across two states.
