Shopify’s chief executive officer dropped a bombshell on Twitter this morning – although when you look at some of the recent decisions from Twitter and OpenText, perhaps it’s not that much of a surprise – signalling the company’s intent to keep its offices closed until 2021 and allow employees to work remotely on a permanent basis after that.
From IT Business Canada:
“Office centricity is over,” Tobi Lutke Tweeted today. “Until recently, work happened in the office. We’ve always had some people remote, but they used the internet as a bridge to the office. This will reverse now. The future of the office is to act as an on-ramp to the same digital workplace that you can access from your #WFH setup.”
