Future of Work – do we need an office?


I was interviewed recently on the question of how new ways of working are developing and functioning in practice; I attach a link to the article. It did provoke thought about how we have approached work historically; mostly you could say that we all come to an office to do work. This is in accordance with long established rules and procedures and many people still expect this arrangement.

However, in the 21st century, I believe that the penny has dropped with increasing numbers of people and that many now recognise that work is something we do, not necessarily somewhere we go.  Work can be done anywhere, any place, any time, much like the old advertising slogan.

But what does this changing landscape mean for offices and property? Your thoughts most welcome.
