This Is The Explanation Of Experts If World Citizens Continue To Carry Out WFH


IllustrationIllustration - Some of us have made the home a place of work for the past few months. To return to the office still seems difficult to materialize.

Large companies in the technology sector allow their employees to work from home permanently.

To understand the effects, we talked with four urban experts. At present everything works from home.

Paul Cheshire, professor of geography economics, London School of Economics:

I thought we would go back to the office, but not in the same way as before.

People are more productive when close and face to face. There are 20 years of persuasive research that shows how important that is. There are many things that you cannot do if you are not with others - humans are social creatures.

Les Back, professor of sociology, Goldsmiths University:

In my opinion, we are at a decisive point. There is a reorientation, a recalibration of the relationship between space, time, and social life that brings us together. We might see a fundamental change. Some things may not go back to normal.

Aude Bicquelet-Lock, deputy head of policy and research, Royal Town Planning Institute:

It is true that a number of companies have allowed their employees to work from home forever. Twitter says it. Facebook said that. Barclays's CEO said that putting 7,000 people in offices might be the past.

The experience of going to the office in Aberystwyth is not the same as going to an office in London. The reduction in office space will affect small, medium, and large cities in different ways.

I think there might be a big impact [from working at home]. There is pressure in the domestic sphere. There is a pressure of gender relations at home, related to the increasingly blurring and piling up of ways of childcare and work as well as the pressure that results from it all.

In my opinion, local centers will be more diverse — more places to eat, more social activities because people want to meet each other. Working from home also means accessing workplaces in small cities on certain days. Growth is expected to occur in these areas.

The opposite can happen in big cities, which naturally raises the question of how office space can be used: there are several options, such as changing offices to settlements, which are not always successful.
