With the lessons learned from managing businesses through two years of a pandemic, companies are seriously reconsidering the amount of capital that is being put into rent on an annual basis for larger properties with their brand name on the front door.
Remote can work, but companies also need to be able to create a culture for employees to buy into — and the importance of the office environment cannot be overlooked…
So how do they do that without eating into their profits due to high rents?
