What is “Return to Office” Really About?

On What’s Your Work Fit we pose this viewer question: What is “Return to Office” Really About?

We are joined by our new What’s Your Work Fit in the Workplace? series co-hosts Mark Gilbreath and Fran Saele.

For ten years, Mark has stubbornly held onto the conviction that the commercial real estate industry’s grip on how and where we work needs a complete reset.

As Founder and CEO of LiquidSpace, Mark is helping some of the coolest companies and their employees around the world to “work from where it works, for you, your team, the planet.”

And Fran is a globally recognized workplace and commercial real estate solutions expert and a frequent commentator on LinkedIn in the area of future of work and workplace.

His professional passion includes the dynamic new ways of work and the transformation of the workplaces to support it.

This week’s lead question was posed by What’s Your Work Fit? viewer Marsha:

Marsha is a not typical consumer of mainstream media for she thinks that one topic in particular, the return to the office, has become unnecessarily polarized—with a tilt towards “return to the office or else” warnings.

And she doesn’t think that the TV discussions are all that helpful, because many guests booked on cable TV morning shows often glorify the pre-pandemic workplace experience.

So, Marsha asks: what is “return to the office” really about?

During this information packed episode, Mark also answers “what’s your work fit?’ His personal vision surely will resonate with many career professionals.
