I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to design digital workplaces or “offices in the cloud.” These environments enable companies to allow flexible and remote working for their teams. I also teach the digital literacy, fluency, communication and collaboration skills needed to work in these modern technology-rich workplaces.

Every single business that was in a brick-and-mortar environment is going to have to reimagine that environment as we move out of lockdowns.

Due to the complexity of hygiene and physical distancing that will be required I HIGHLY recommend to leadership teams to make remote working permanent for everyone who can work from home in your organization. This is going to be the least disruptive to your operations.

This means finding solutions to all the challenges you have faced with your remote work endeavors up to this point. (Please reach out to me if you want to discuss those)

To get a glimpse of what “reimagining the workplace” looks like and the logistics around this, take a listen to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo describe those process.

(Sadly NY has been one of the disease epicenters and they have lost over 14,000 people as of today)
