If you constitute this type of work environment, why don’t you just support an all out remote workforce? It is cheaper, and with the right equipment, even more productive.

I tend to agree, but with many businesses a shared home office has its purposes. I tend to thing that if it is needed and worth the cost then why not. As an independent worker I have no need for this but when I was working as a consultant for a large company a central shared office was nice (of course I was only there 10 times a year).

I agree that an all-out remote workforce would probably save money in the long run and heighten productivity (once workers got used to working at home/remote and performance goals were set accordingly) and employee satisfaction. But I think there will always be a need for some sort of office for employees to touch base, and of course to put a public face on the company. But in general, the more the companies can keep their workforce at home - with the proper IT equipment and security precautions -- the better.

This should be an interesting progression to watch. With the face of many companies shifting to their online presence the public 'brick-and-mortar' face is becoming less and less important. I look forward to this change continuing and hope that people are able to learn the proper discipline.

Yes, I think the traditional HQ office with reception area and greeter is going away...much like you often can't get a receptionist on the phone when you call main numbers these days.

It is easier for IT folks and mainly developers to be remote. Any customer facing position needs a presence and an office; even if the office is one room, and a shared common area between the tenants. Other than that, a remote workforce is the way to go –
