Organizations worldwide are focusing on how to bring employees back to the workplace safely, efficiently, and effectively, so Kelly and workplace advisory design strategist, Nick Busalacchi, discuss four key points companies can consider to take their workplace into the future through remaining ready, agile and resilient to whatever the future of work brings.

The concept of work is changing

Work as we know it has been disrupted. As a result, the concept of work is changing, commute journeys are varying, employee values are shifting, and workplaces are no longer just offices. The time to consider the holistic Future of Work is now.

While it may not look the same everywhere, leading organizations are leaning into this transition by building in more flexibility and people-centric design into their workplaces. This focus is readying them to remain agile and resilient, no matter what the future brings.
