A little over two years ago, employees worldwide packed up their desks and headed home for what we all believed would be two weeks. As more and more tech companies roll out return-to-office plans, employees have made it clear that they aren’t willing to give up the flexibility and autonomy they’ve become accustomed to working remotely for the past couple of years. The office’s traditional role has forever changed, but it doesn’t mean that physical office space won’t be an essential part of the future of work. After years of social distancing, many employees look forward to returning to the workplace’s energy, collaborative spirit, and cultural nexus.
