Ep. 108: Planning for the Return to Offices and the Future of the Workplace during COVID-19 with Kay Sargent of HOK

Kay Sargent is Senior Principal and Director of WorkPlace at HOK where she is a recognized expert on workplace design and strategy issues. She is an award-winning designer who has worked with several Fortune 500 companies to optimize their global real estate portfolios and create innovative work environments. This week’s podcast episode features highlights from the “Workplace Innovator Interactive Livestream” which was broadcast on April 22, 2020 in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Mike Petrusky and Madison Dujka co-host a discussion about the many challenges and opportunities arising as workplace leaders plan for a return to the physical office. Kay shares her concerns about organizations rushing to make decisions when there is no “one size” solution for workplaces. She offers her ideas around the case for a hands-free workplace and gives us a vision for the future of the office in both the near and long term during our journey through this global pandemic.
