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.

So many leaders are understanding how dramatically remote work changes office space requirements.

Case in point:

“As businesses reopened, Mike Mallaro [VGM Group Inc.] started planning his staff’s return to the office, and ‘came to a realization that I didn’t have before that: ‘Jeez, just about all of our jobs can be done remotely.’ His plans to expand the company’s office space are on hold — indefinitely.”
