Why You Need AI and Analytics for Your Co-working Space

By Evan Williams on Jul 9, 2021 12:46:00 PM

The way America works is no longer a clear-cut image. Hazy at best, it’s an image of change, an evolving concept with health risk and safety measures at the focus.

As the number of new Covid-19 cases plummet and the number of vaccinated Americans rises, workplace options begin to emerge. The office is now a multi-definition destination.

For some of us, the office has been a repurposing of a spare bedroom or as simplified as the kitchen table. Set the alarm each night for 8:50 AM and still manage to make it to work on time, pajama-clad and coffee mug in hand.

Others have found a secluded park picnic table, a sidewalk cafe, or have capitalized on the free Wi-fi streaming out of the local McDonald’s. Laptops popping up everywhere.

We’ve adjusted, found our happy place, one where we’re content to perform our work duties while the world awaits the end of the pandemic.

Yet, survey after survey indicates that many of us miss our desk, our singular office space. Percentages as high as 70% of us desire to be back at our desk, at least for some of the workweek.

Employers have learned that employees can work from just about anywhere. How, then, can they make a compelling case for workers returning to the office? What assurances can they offer? And what of employee expectations?

Will socially distanced floor plans, temperature checks, reservation systems, and mandatory hygiene measures become the standard?

The heading above is the title of a May 31st, 2021 Forbes article by Warren Shoulberg. In it, he makes the observations:

“We know some people are going to go back to some offices. We know those office spaces will be different than they used to be. And we know the commercial real estate industry is facing one of its most serious challenges in modern history.
