The importance of a workplace - Condense the community spirit

Confronting to the current pandemic crisis and the uncertain economic situation, people have realized the feasibility and convenience of Work-From-Home. It is driving lots of opinions in the office furniture industry that Work-From-Office may soon be replaced by Work-From-Home.

According to Marc, he believes that offices still exist in the future, and the office is going to experience a mega revolution.

The innate human needs for social connections will never change. When people work together across the offices like families, companies will flourish.

Working from home for prolonged period erodes our social bonds and community spirit, and we lose touch with the pulse of the organization.

Face-To-Face working is able to strengthen the social connection, promote collaboration and mend friction.
