Earlier in the year, a report by academics at Cardiff and Southampton Universities found that a majority of people would like to continue working from home in some capacity, even after social distancing is no longer a requirement. But what would a permanent shift to distributed work look like? And what would it mean for organisational performance? 

This week on the Good Practice Podcast, Ross D and Owen are joined by Dr Kerstin Sailer, Reader in Social and Spatial Networks at University College London, to discuss:

  • the relationship between workplace design and communication
  • the implications of a more permanent move away from the physical office
  • considerations when adapting existing spaces to allow for social distancing
