As more workers work remotely, has the office itself become a relic of a bygone era?
What do your bed, the corner coffee shop, the gym and your living room all have in common? Today, they’re all offices.
Sure, they may not have copiers, water coolers or coworkers burning popcorn in the microwave. But with the introduction of new technologies that enable always-on access to key information, today’s workforce is working remotely more and more. In fact, a recent study found that by 2020, nearly three quarters of the U.S. workforce will be made up of remote workers—a gain of nearly 10 million workers over the next four years.
This seismic shift in the workforce has implications both positive and negative. But today, I want to talk less about the reasons behind this shift, and instead focus on how it will impact one key area: the office itself.
