The office will be never dead. The reason is there will always be that section of people who will prefer office over work from home. Rather they will prefer the flexibility to work from home and also from office suiting their convenience. How do I know ? Cause I belong to that section. A video call can never replace the effectiveness of the face to face interactions. Having lunch with your colleagues, brainstorming ideas for hours in a conference room are keys to productivity too. Moreover, I don’t want to bring my work in my home, I like a distinct demarcation between personal life and professional space. So, no matter how much debate happens over the work from home completely taking over traditional offices… office will not go. Also, I am not the only one, there are thousands of people like me who love office and also have the option to work from home as an alternative. Companies should focus on that.

I am working as a Senior Data Scientist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. I love exploring new ideas and new places !! :)
