Offices 'will disappear completely'

Life after graduation
The workers of tomorrow will work across different time zones and cultures and traditional offices will become a thing of the past, it has been claimed.
According to people performance specialist SHL, future workers will work across languages and offices could be replaced by minibus centres around satellite offices.
Commenting on the issue, Howard Grosvenor, managing consultant at SHL, said: "Increasingly people will work from home as organisations cut down their overheads on office space and use remote locations as the new-age workplace."
In light of this, many employers are now considering offering remote working and home working as part of their recruitment drive, which may interest graduates looking for such opportunities.
Statistics show that around 3.1 million people usually or regularly work from home, with this figure expected to double in the near future.
SHL was founded 25 years ago and deals with objective assessment in the workplace.
