Dave Hartman and Jeff Gredlein contributed an article to the Baltimore Business Journal about five key office technology-related areas to consider when thinking about a return-to-work strategy this summer. Here is an excerpt from the article:
“Vaccines are making it possible for many people to return to the office this summer, but it won’t be business as usual. The office of the future will look and perform very differently than it did less than a year and a half ago.
Technology played a key role in helping employees transition efficiently and securely to home offices, and it will play a critical and strategic role in building the right environment for a successful return.
Prior to the pandemic, most businesses focused on efficiency (employees per square foot) when designing office space. Going forward, many experts say companies need to focus on effectiveness (performance per square foot) in building spaces that employees will want to come back to. If all a company offers is a cube, a desk and a computer, employees will likely choose to stay at home and save themselves the commute.”
