As organizations make plans to go back to the office, many are wondering … Why? What does the future hold for the workplace?

In the final session of the Collaboration That Works series Jim Kalbach, MURAL chief evangelist, and Chris Herd, Firstbase founder and CEO, discussed predictions about hybrid and remote work, including:

  • Why HQs as we know them are finished
  • Why commute? The end of traveling 2 hrs/day to meet face-to-face
  • How skyrocketing productivity is driving remote burnout
  • What’s behind “remote fears?"
  • The hunt for missing “water cooler moments”
