More data is needed to define our new normal for work


Larry Dignan: I think the new normal is going to be a little bit more of a hybrid situation where it’s part work in the office, part work from home, but I see it more skewed toward remote work, largely because we’ve gone to this open-office floor plan everywhere, and that’s no longer viable. I don’t think we’re all running back to the office as fast as people hope, largely because all those floor plans need to be altered. That requires more investment, it requires more partitions or however they’re going to do it. All you need to do is look at the reports and call centers out of South Korea. In some of those research reports, they show how coronavirus travels, and I see it as a major challenge. And I don’t think companies are really into rushing back workers per se.
