You have no doubt at least given some thought to the question, “Do we need offices anymore?”
After all, many closed for at least a few months in the early weeks and months of the COVID-19 pandemic, and some remain closed. I noticed that Apple has announced that it expects employees to return to their offices for at least three days a week starting in early September, and there is a good deal of pushback on the plan.
No doubt similar discussions are occurring in many corporate offices as well as start-ups. People have enjoyed their flexibility.
Regardless of how you answer the question, Wil Schroter has just published this quick read that provides his take on three reasons that many think a return to an office is so important.
