14:40   Discussion
We have debated before whether working practices and technology are pushing us relentlessly towards flexible/home-working, but now there is a brand new and powerful consideration that none of us can control.
  • Is this the death-knell for office-based employment?
  • Have we not just proven that we can all work successfully from remote locations?
  • Or is there a need for community and face-face communication?
  • What about that spontaneous lunch with colleagues, or that after-work beer?
  • Will the demand for flex offices increase or will occupiers be put off by mingling with unknown third parties?
  • Would remote working change the nature of business relationships, and the concept of colleagues?
  • If we decide we need a base, can it be smaller (less costly) or does it need to be able to accommodate all employees from time to time?
  • Will occupiers require more space per worker, thereby increasing demand?
  • Will the locational criteria change? Convenience/cost, vs centrality and prestige?
  • Will out of town office parks with ample parking facilities gain traction again?
  • Is video conferencing, now tested by everyone, the replacement for the sense of belonging/camaraderie/community, or will we all go crazy using it?
