Approximately 30 years ago virtual office spaces made a splash through the US and around the world with flexible space suitable for startups and entrepreneurs on the move. Also known as executive suites, the first such office was launched back in 1962 but did not gain mass popularity at that time and was limited by the lack of technology that was yet to come. About 15 years ago, co-working spaces launched everywhere and become the new hip trend for startups and enterprise companies looking for a temporary space to launch new projects in different markets.
As a result of the pandemic and the new normal of business, millions of people are working from home, taking the virtual office space into a whole new dimension. Many business leaders feel that this may be the way they operate post-pandemic. What does that mean for business operations and productivity? What are the benefits and challenges to be aware of? Our special guest, Daniel Gracia, is an expert in remote workplaces and helps us unveil this new but not so new trend.
