Designing a post-pandemic office environment

Designing a post-pandemic office environment

People used to come to work because they had to. Now they come in because the office offers them something they can't get at home. The question is what workers need. Organisations are coming up with very different answers. It could be the bustle and warmth of in-person human connection or an escape from the distractions of family life.

Business leaders must carefully think through how they design their office environment to lure reluctant employees.

Two views of the post-pandemic office

The post-pandemic office is presented as a site of connection and liveliness where workers escape the quiet and solitude of the work-from-home lifestyle. In addition, background music can increase productivity.

But not everyone agrees that the post-pandemic office should be like a bustling cafe. Other companies have determined that most employees need long, uninterrupted blocks of time to do their best work, similar to a library. Here the office is not seen as a coffee shop but as a refuge.

Office design

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
