    Open planed office spaces were regarded as being inefficient for years now.
    This is just a slight difference
    :/

    Because of being laid off for Covid19, I decided to start a Youtube channel around my long time passion. Would really love you guys could show me some support. Thanks

    This is BS. This mentality that we're all going to do infect eachother in perpetuity is setting a very bad precedent and will change the human psyche in a very bad way.

    So companies will have to invest a lot to make their office space compliant? It will just be cheaper to pay 1000 bucks or whatever to have a employee buy a desk and a screen at home.

    So the CEO of a property developer puts some arbitrary solutions in place that allow him to not wear a mask and pretend it is all good. It is open plan, did anyone tell the virus it is not allowed to go over small glass barriers?

    hopefully it is loving people friendly.

    My entire company of 200 people has worked from home for 12 years. This is the future.

    I guess the open offices will all have to be undone…

    Get rid of offices. Zoom makes them completely pointless.

    Good riddance to the open office concept. No privacy and too much noise. Bring back the high walled cubicles (just not the ugly beige one form the 80's).

    This is not going to last forever…and these provisions are unnecessary. To be frank, most offices around the world can't afford these.

    We do realize change means money making right? These property manager eventually will transfer the cost to the renters

    The future is remote working. Me and my entire team have been working from since February. Nobody said that are missing office. We all DO miss interacting with each other, having lunch together, and laugh. But generally everybody is admitting they are more relaxed and more productive working from home. My company has seen a rise in productivity since the quarantine began and everyone was allowed to work from home.
    I see people, working from their cabins or trailers in north Wisconsin. Working from home is also allowing them to spend more time with their kids/family and run chores/errands in between giving them more time for other activities. I am happy working from home and all my team members are also happy to work from home.

    What would be the beneficial effects of putting Rupert Murdoch into a nursing home where he belongs instead of allowing him to continue spreading lies and hate through FoxNews.

    Only corporate office are not the ones that everyone should be focused on. Workplaces also include factories, door to door service etc. Any kind of heavy lifting/ other such works which require more than 1 person is quite common- those are the really tough spaces to maintain physical distancing. People must delve into such practical problems to solve them- not just corporate offices.

    Like the rest of the world give everybody Hydroxychloroquine and get back to work. This works, this is the best overall solution to the COVID feardemic.

    You cannnot disinfect the Universe.
    Most of those measures are simply useless and just a waste of money, contributing just to the wide spread of fear.
