As tech companies announced plans for permanent remote work options in the wake of the pandemic, the median price of a commercial rental in San Francisco dropped 24.2% compared to 2019. Even now, many more companies have renounced their plan to bring employees back to the office full-time, so remote options have become a necessity. Hybrid work is here to stay, which reflects the importance of not just where we work, but also how and when we work.

When it comes to office design, many companies are now putting sustainability at the top of their list. For 62% of executives, staying competitive means catering to an eco-conscious workforce and focusing on energy-efficient design in their distributed workspaces.

New trends in sustainability are transforming the office, where integrating new technologies and green tools can attract a happier, healthier workforce.

As workspace experts, we’ve compiled a list of tips for creating a greener workplace:

Workspaces have changed significantly since the onset of the pandemic. Despite these changes, we have to wonder: is the work ecosystem ready to support fully remote teams? Based on details gathered from our network of hybrid and remote teams, I have come to the following conclusions:

1. U.S. Professionals still need some degree of office space.

Remote work for flexible teams requires a considerable shift in work culture.

March 2021 will mark one year since half of the workforce left their traditional office spaces to work from home full-time. As we weren’t able to prepare for the impact of the pandemic, many aspects of our lives were turned upside-down.
