Reimagining the Workplace: Returning to the Office After COVID-19

One thing we know for certain: the role of the office will never be the same post-COVID-19. However, there are ways for companies to improve their current real estate situation - looking forward, aligning your office space design to new work styles and processes will successfully influence your corporate culture and reduce your operating expenses.

Decreases in COVID-19 cases and a faster than expected roll out of vaccinations has some employers looking to bring their staff back to the office earlier than expected. But the decision does not go without much question. Are employees ready and willing to make the return? How must office spaces be set up to best fit the needs of remote, in-office and hybrid workers? Does a return to office make sense given operational changes over the past year?  

The value of the office is being completely redefined, and companies are focusing on how to re-enter their office space.  This program will examine operational strategies, rebuilding office culture and prioritizing office space economics.  These are big strategic issues with no one-size-fits-all solution.
