COVID-19 fundamentally changed how people think about—and use—public space, especially corporate offices. Reacting to health and safety concerns, many companies quickly transitioned to a remote work policy.
However, the general idea was that full-time remote policies would be temporary, with an equally fast return to the office planned within weeks or months. Those weeks turned into a year—or even longer for many organizations. Companies learned that remote work is viable.
Over the course of the pandemic, companies realized that for individual, task-based projects, their employees were just as productive working from home as they were in the office. But full-time remote work does have its downsides. Company culture, collaboration, and innovation all suffer.
In this guide, you’ll learn how companies today are creating the right spaces, assembling the right teams, and communicating the right policies as they return to the physical workplace.
