Will We Ever Go Back to the Office Again?

Publisher: CMS Wire

The effectiveness of work from home has been a debated topic for decades. Only about a quarter of the US workforce (23.7%) worked from home on a consistent basis prior to the pandemic. The old saying that necessity is the mother of invention couldn’t be truer now. The speed at which companies were able to mobilize their workforces to work from home was unprecedented.

As more companies make the decision to allow employees to work from home more frequently, will that open up the opportunity to create more specialized, tech-enabled workspaces in the office, or will we never return to the office again?

Virtusa’s EVP of Technology, Media, and Telecommunications Frank Palermo shares his predictions with CMS Wire about how teams will work and collaborate moving forward.
