No one can talk about the future of offices and workplaces
without addressing the fact that the global pandemic of 2020 –
Covid-19 - has flipped our world as we knew it upside down.
Companies are struggling to determine how they will eventually
reopen and rebuild, as well as readjust their thinking about work,
and where and how it’s performed.
We are beginning to see a slow loosening of regulations and attempts to open back up again - safely and effectively - which is good news. How will this new virus – and this new way of thinking about space optimization and safety – change how we design and function in offices? How will technology and collaboration come together to create a whole new way of thinking about workspace design in general? We went to one of the top voices in this field for answers.
Bob Fox possesses more than 30 years of experience, is an active member of the design community, and speaks regularly at industry events focused on the future of the workplace. Covid-19 and the changes put in place because of it will drive future office design and layout. While it’s hard to predict exactly where we will be in one, five, or even ten years from now, these changes will definitely have left an interesting mark on the way that we think about the workplace.
In response to Covid-19, Future Offices Summer 2020 will be held as an Online Event on August 4 - 5. The agenda is packed with experts and sessions you’ll love focusing on remote working, changes in space optimization, office sanitation/cleanliness, employee safety and health and more.
