The Edit: The Evolving Office

How Covid has influenced the office of the future, how banks are leading the charge on green finance and more in this week’s #TheEdit.
3rd Dec 2021

With the rise of the concerning Omicron variant spreading across the world, many have been reminded that our attempt to return to normal is fragile and could well be fleeting. Remote and hybrid working are clearly here to stay – and that changes how we think about our offices. 

What was once the everyday setting of people’s jobs has now become a destination for team work that can’t be accomplished online. So what does the future of the office look like? How will our new working habits change the landscape of our workplaces? 

This is our edit of the global conversation on purpose.
