20 Sep Episode 83: What is the Future of Physical Offices?
The workplace is in a state of flux, and that includes the physical workplace. It used to be the place we went to because that is where we could work – that was where the computers were and we had to sit in board rooms to meet with each other but that has changed. To discuss how to create new physical workspaces to go with the hybrid world, Linda Nazareth is joined on this episode by Doug Shapiro, VP of Research and Insights at global furniture manufacturer OFS and the host of the podcast Imagine a Place.
