All those ‘teleworking is the new normal’ predictions? Not so much, say bosses

Where do we want to be in the future?

There's a real opportunity now to reset from how we have been working for the last 50+ years to a vision of how we want to work and may have to work in 5 or 10 years time. Other factors such as population growth and future demands on transport infrastructure may mean that continuing to travel to CBDs isn't the best or most cost effective way forward.

Instead the adoption of other workplace models such as wfh combined with workplace hubs in regions, e.g. the Queensland governments distributed work centres (DWC), may be needed. These not only reduce the demand on transport but spread the economic benefits of lunchtime shoppers etc to the regions.

The hard part, changing behaviour, is already in progress so why not capitalise on it now.
