During the first two decades of this century, the typical office slowly transitioned from an environment where workers were confined to cubicles and managers to offices into a far more open plan space. In recent years whilst some organisations have encouraged limited remote working, fundamentally, there has been little change to the way we worked; the majority of workers were ‘confined’ to their primary office workspace.
During the first few months of 2020, however, the entire concept of where people work has undergone a revolution. Almost every business has had to face an unexpected, and sudden, “Work from Home” challenge. This has necessitated a transformation in attitudes to remote working, but even more, a rapid adoption of collaborative services like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex, Dropbox – amongst others.
