The future of office design
Watch this exclusive event today
We carried out a YouGov poll in February of 1,000 office staff on their views on working life during the pandemic and their thoughts on returning to office life. Join us for a panel discussion where we’ll be discussing our findings in detail and talking to a panel of experts about what offices can do to prepare for the eventual return of staff and future office in a post-Covid world . We’ll look at the ‘hotelisation’ of offices, as firms look to put more creature comforts in workplaces to reassure staff and create a cosy (yet productive) environment. And what has been the true impact of 12 months of remote working on UK office staff?
