One of the things that gets cited as an advantage to be physically in the office is collaboration. You get to walk to someone’s desk, meet with people face to face and chat, and discuss things. What actually happens is that there are always people “collaborating” - talking, most often near you, there is a constant "buzz"(noise) in the open space like it is a factory floor. Put on headphones, or ear muffs, you would say. So be in the office to be near people and in the same time think of ways to isolate from them. Make meetings only in dedicated places, you say. So be in the office to have the freedom to walk to anyone and collaborate, but forbid this and cripple it by requiring meetings be held in dedicated areas instead.
What in our connected world prevents us from collaborating regardless of physical location. We have lots and lots of tools to connect, meet, talk, chat, collaborate all we need is an internet connection and it doesn’t matter where each of our team members is physically located. When you are collaborating with a person you are not interfering the work of lots of others that don’t need your noise and distraction. We could be at home, at a coffee shop, at the park, you name it, just pick the place where you could be most productive and that is your office.
