9 Must-Reads When Prepping Your Office Return in 2021

Is it the faint smell of coffee, the white noise of colleagues slamming away on their keyboards, or a chat at the coffee machine... what do we miss the most about the office? Definitely not the the challenge of finding a parking spot... or traffic.... 

Maybe not surprisingly, after a year of social isolation, recent studies have shown that what we miss most about the office is the people, our colleagues. Yes, also the one firing bad dad-jokes all the time or the one that is always 5 minutes late for meetings. We look forward meeting all of them again, it is top of mind and discussed nearly every time we interact with our customers.

And with that joyful moment approaching, there are many questions to be answered. We gathered some of our most asked questions and answers for everyone responsible for or interested in the return to their offices in 2021:
