The COVID-19 pandemic created a global shift in the way we view work and the spaces we work from. While some people adapted easily to work from home, others missed the cross-pollination of creativity and social cohesion of office space.
The new world of work incorporates the best of both worlds by adopting a more agile approach that allows employees to work from the office when collaboration and teamwork are needed, and from home for solitary focus work. The result is that many businesses are downsizing the square meterage of their workspaces and allowing staff and teams to take responsibility for how they divide their time between home and the office.
The challenge now lies in managing scheduling to avoid conflicts and ensure that not everybody is in the same place at the same time.
