The COVID-19 pandemic forced many organizations to embrace remote work practices, leaving offices empty for months.
After several months of working from home, workers are increasingly reporting that they would like to keep working from home at least part-time. This will have big implications for offices and company headquarters.
Not only will worker preferences change the office, but also companies will likely rethink their real estate strategy as they find ways to reduce costs to make up for the losses caused by the pandemic.
While there will be offices in the future of work, large campuses and headquarters will likely be a thing of the past, or at least they will significantly decrease in size. Organizations will likely adopt more flexible work arrangements and environments, like coworking spaces in order to provide a choice-based work experience.
