COVID has altered the way many employees work. Are changes to the workplace here to stay? What are the consequences of these changes? 

The Fully Remote Workplace

  • Fully remote is not here to stay but will most likely lead to a hybrid model:  
    1. The talent pool is eventually going to be offshored (virtual). 
    2. The traditional office will become less of a work-hub and more of a “water-cooler.” 

Consequences of the Hybrid Model

  • New management styles  
    • Managers need to be honest with their teams and talk about their stresses due to the loss of in-person interaction. 
    • Companies can now hire the best talent worldwide because there is no requirement for worker relocation. 
  • New forms of organizational design  
    • Companies will need more efficient/accessible methods of information-sharing (i.e. Notion and Slack). 
  • The reinvention of towns and cities  
    • Lack of home-to-work commute leads to increased demand for micro-mobility (i.e. bikes), requiring urban planners to build infrastructure to use micro-mobility safely (i.e. bike lanes).
