  • 20-30% people coming back to the office; but airports and sports arenas back to 100%. Offices have more work to do
  • Hallway conversations before and after the meeting are important. People calling in remotely on video don’t get that level of information – there is an opportunity for tech to fix that problem
  • LinkedIn is seeing that people want to be with their teams but they are not collaborating for eight hours
  • Onboarding remotely means pieces of the process and culture have been lost compared to people joining a company in the office. We are going to see remote work affect performance. Community is going to be something employers look closely at and push forward on
