Our foresight editor, Kathryn Bishop shares her predictions on the future of the office on the latest podcast episode of Working From Home with Stylist.

Speaking to Stylist’s editor-in-chief Lisa Smosarksi, Kathryn discussed what might happen to the physical office, our ways of working and work/life balance.

“We might start to find what we describe as rotational offices start to emerge,” Kathryn says. “This could almost be a riff on what we’ve seen in co-working spaces: there’s more of a casual office working space, maybe [rather] than having one solid permanent office space that your company uses. Even these buildings aren’t pandemic-proof anymore, they’re not fit for purpose, so we’re going to have architects really starting to think actually about the design of the office.” Read more on Stylist.
