The largest part of 2020 has been somewhat of a dark time for most of us – if only because the vast majority of us have been holed up at home.
Yes, when the directive came that brick and mortar offices, venues and shops were to shut their doors – and if anybody could work from home, that would be the new day-to-day – we collectively experienced an unprecedented shift in ‘normal’ life as we knew it.
Now, because of what lockdown has revealed, it’s obvious that the way we do business all over the world, will never be the same. Due to our hyperconnected society, it’s been proven that now is just the right time to become a remote-working society, and that looks set to be the future directive.
So, the question remains, will the concept of an office still exist as we move forward with this ‘new normal?’
At Giant Space, we think it certainly will. For, what we’ve actually seen, is that modern tech capability and infrastructure aside, humans need human contact, connectedness and the opportunity to work collaboratively.
Having said that though, we do agree that the office certainly won’t be what it is now, only an iteration of the concept, so that a hybrid of remote and office work can come to the fore as the most productive option.
