COVID revolution: at work, the end of cubicles?

MISE & Agrave; DAY

Many employers will rethink the office space they offer their workforce if some of them continue to work remotely several days a week. & nbsp;

Companies will undoubtedly reduce the number of square feet occupied, but it is above all the configuration of the space that is likely to change, suspect several stakeholders. & nbsp;

“The office becomes more of a place to socialize and collaborate” than to accomplish individual work that could be done efficiently at home, explains Julie Bélanger, vice-president of human resources at the information technology company mdf commerce. & nbsp;

“It will tend towards collaborative and flexible spaces, something flexible.” & nbsp;

One thing is certain: a company will no longer be able to bet on image of her beautiful large office filled to the brim with employees to flash, adds Ms. Bélanger. & nbsp;

Could offices even disappear to become completely dematerialized? Michel Leblanc, of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, does not believe it. & Nbsp;

“We see some, but it is a very small minority. Many specialists tell us: it will not work “, in particular because intensive teleworking generates less sense of belonging and weakens the integration of new ones. In short, physical offices will continue to exist, although their function and appearance are different. & Nbsp;
