What do we think is going to happen to the WPP campus they’re building now that it’s been determined that almost all agency roles can be done from home?

I’m hoping I’m out of wpp by that point. The idea of all the agencies together in one hot desk hell trying to avoid all the conflicting businesses from seeing each other’s work just doesn’t sound ideal.

Hmm good question. Our agency (part of Wpp) has acknowledged they understand how the office plays a big role. Maybe floor plan sizes will be downgraded, more of a scheduled, staggered attendance plan.

Campus was actually built with this in mind. There isn’t enough space for all employees; it was always assumed there would be 25% or more WFH.

@D1 from my experience with this type of office, people end up sitting in the same place everyday. And, it’s actually cleaner because noting is left on the desks making them easier to wipe down. Also, we had wipes everywhere in the office so I would do a once over in the am.

Ditto what Ogilvy1 said. The campus was always intended to be for “hotel” style desks. My concern is that how will the manage cleanliness and contact tracing which will likely still be part of the “new normal” when no one has an assigned seat?

When is it going to be completed?

I think early 2022 was the projected date but not sure if it’s still on track for then

I hope they don’t make it just a sea of hot desk stations and boardrooms. It would be nice to have more spaces to collaborate or work with your partner. If there’s work I can do alone from my desk, I’d rather do that work from home.

Right...especially when it’s a bleak hot desk with zero personality, and you pack your life up in a bag at the end of the day.
