Top executives give their take on the future of work for development and delivery teams
Dropbox, Twitter, and Shopify have confirmed their employees will continue to work from home as long as they want, according to Forbes, while companies like Amazon, Zillow, and Target have put hard dates to mark the end of their remote-first policies. And when Microsoft offices reopen, it will be in a hybrid model, allowing employees to work from home less than 50% of the working week.
Which of these models will ultimately win out? It’s important to understand because many employees across the country are assuming they are no longer bound to a specific location, and instead are electing to move to a more desirable location whether it be for better taxes, closer to family, or just a generally better quality of life.
With all of this uncertainty, it’s difficult to know where the workplace of the future will be. So, we’ve invited top agile & DevOps leaders to give their take on where the workplace is heading in 2021 and what they’ve learned from 2020. They’ll share what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, and what they’re hearing from other agile and DevOps leaders.
