As we come back to the office we are learning that it will not look the same as the one we left when the pandemic started. Now offices will have to be much more flexible to deal with a distributed workforce. They will also have to find new ways to connect and communicate directly with the workers that use it.
This means that the metrics that we use to understand the office are changing as well. No longer will there be a push for increasing density. Instead, we will have to find ways to calculate the benefits of the office when it comes to productivity, collaboration, and company culture. Join us as we discuss how to think about and calculate the new metrics for an office and how technology can help us understand the changing role of the workplace.
