How the Crisis will change Office Life


When workers around the world return to their desks, many employees will find big changes in their offices.

There will likely be fewer people since working from home becomes more accepted.

Workers who go to the office could arrive in staggered shifts to avoid rush hour crowds or could work alternate days to reduce crowding.

The CEO of Hive, a New York City-based software company plans to help employees avoid packed subways by starting at different times. Architects say cubicles are making a return as offices move away from open plan spaces.

In many buildings, employees will see one-way paths and elevators could be limited to a few people at a time. Floor markings will remind people to stand apart and there will be a lot more cleaning.
