The workplace effects of the COVID-19 pandemic will alter office spaces and employee interactions. Affiliate David Levine discusses the ramifications of the pandemic for returning to office work and for employee interactions in an article for CBS News.
“From skyscrapers in Manhattan to sleek campuses in Silicon Valley, offices across the country have been mostly empty for months.
‘In some ways, this virus is a workplace virus, it’s an office virus,’ said Amol Sarva, co-founder and CEO of Knotel, a company that designs and rents office space to major corporations internationally. ‘This is one of the few things that ever happened that shut every office in the world down.’
‘You gonna be making a lot of changes now?’ asked correspondent John Blackstone.
‘That is an understatement, John!’ Sarva laughed. ‘The world is different. And we’re not going back to the old way.’
For some, that may mean not going back to the office, period. Tech giantsand Square have told their employees they can work from home indefinitely. Other major companies plan to keep offices closed at least until the end of summer … some until the end of the year.”
