A return to the office – or not?

Is working from anywhere reality or fantasy? The future of work will have to offer remote work as an option, as this piece in SmartBrief points out. According to a recent survey, more than 80% of CEOs want their teams to return to the office. However, only 10% of employees are interested, mainly out of safety concerns. While many CEOs and managers prefer a physical presence, the pandemic has demonstrated to employees the benefits of flexible schedules and flexible workplaces. Returning to the office will need to present a mutual benefit for both employers and employees.

The workplace of the future will offer more intentional opportunities for collaboration, as this article in Fast Company describes. While many workplaces will pursue a remote model, the physical spaces within will need to be redesigned to combine the best of work-from-home productivity and in-person connection.
