In the early days of working from home, innovations quickly arose to meet the demands of a disoriented workforce, from Zoom backgrounds to leisurewear. Three years on, as we head back into office spaces and explore how the future of work may evolve, innovation is again on the rise to meet the emerging needs and preferences of both employers and employees returning to work. In this insightful panel, we’ll examine how the pandemic has fundamentally changed our traditional approaches and strategies around the workplace, exploring what businesses can learn from adjacent industries like hospitality to elevate the modern workday experience.
