The pandemic has been an extended experiment for most companies who are trying to manage people working from home.
Instead of making it mandatory to attend the office physically like before, many companies have adopted a hybrid model where one could go to the office once a week and work from home the rest of the days.
This new approach changes the purpose of coming to the office.
Office time can be utilized to do collaborative teamwork and promote interaction. Technology can be used more effectively to allow high-quality video conferencing with team members sitting in remote locations.
The office itself need not be the size it was before the pandemic struck. As more co-working spaces are added, the need for an expansive office is lessened.
New research shows more than two-thirds of the workforce feels disconnected or alienated from their fellow colleagues.
Companies need to adapt the office to meet the growing demands and unique needs of a hybrid, always-connected workforce. New office designs would be aimed at teamwork, creativity and fostering connections.
