How The Post-Pandemic Workplace Creates Meaningful Gatherings in New Space Designs

The post-pandemic workplace is not going to be like it was when you worked in the office before 2020. As companies grapple with their hybrid work plans, leaders are taking this moment to refresh and reset. Leaders need to think consciously about creating a post-pandemic workplace that creates meaningful gatherings in new space designs.  

In today’s episode, we interview Dr. Tracy Brower, a PhD sociologist, author of The Secrets to Happiness at Work, contributor for Forbes.com and a principal with Steelcase Applied Research + Consulting group. Tracy explains that instead of simply “getting our employees back to the office”, we need to talk about how we are going to make our return to the office more compelling.

Rachel Casanova and Ginny Bianco Mathis have been investigating this post-COVID work environment and there seems to be two conflicting conversations occurring between leaders and employees.

In one extreme, there are some leaders saying they want their employees back into the offices by September. On the other side, employees are questioning the very nature of work and want their leaders and organizations to meet their needs.

The options in the future (remote work, in office work and hybrid work) seem to serve different needs for different audiences.

Inside this teaser for episode 55, listen to Rachel Casanova’s perspective that explores how we can think about creating places for people to come to work, and what we should be watching for.
