How Covid-19 changes the way we work

1. Working in the office will only be symbolic

Brent Capron – Design Director at Perkins and Will said that after the pandemic, more Americans will redistribute their time between working at work and at home.

If there’s one bright spot in the pandemic’s impact on the workplace, it’s improved relationships between colleagues.

6. Masks will become an essential item in the wardrobe

In addition to office clothes, two other types of fashion that will appear after the pandemic are office clothes to wear when working remotely and masks.
