After the coronavirus pandemic is over and things return to normalcy, the view of traditional office design and development will be transformed. In fact, it is likely that more people will be claiming that the office is dead and not a necessity to get work tasks done.
Time has proven that while offices have their fair share of social benefits, there are numerous burdens it carries. Younger generations in particular have led the demand for contemporary shared offices, while major companies like Google have reinvented their offices in a revolutionary way that helps attract and retain top talent.
Now that many professionals have the ability to work from anywhere, how can offices retain its appeal for employees, investors and developers?
While working from home has its own perks, the collaborative and networking opportunities created in a workspace are unmatched. And although the transition to working remotely is easy with colleagues you have already worked with physically, this may not be the case if you barely know your colleagues.
Overall, the office world may just have a huge comeback one the dust has settled, and firms will need to strongly emphasize proper design in order to keep people coming into the workspace.
