    • Entrepreneurship

Covid-19 forced most office workers to work remotely to curb the spread of the virus. And while some offices are re-opening with people going back to work, albeit with a different set up and schedule, other companies have announced either extended, indefinite or even permanent WFH arrangements.

What does this all mean for the big office? Are there intangibles at risk when we no longer routinely share a space with our colleagues? Our host Carolyn Camoens speaks with Ben Hamley, Asia-Pacific Lead for the Future of Work at JLL, and Borko Kovacevic, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Operating Officer, and Lynn Dang, HR Lead at Microsoft Singapore.
