On the edge of a crisis: Q1 Trend Report 2020

This Trend Report looks at a wide range of emerging ideas just at the point at which the global pandemic panics the global economy and disrupts our working model

This Trend Report captures emerging themes and ideas just as the coronavirus crisis begins shutting down entire industries and locking down entire cities, leaving millions of offices workers to pick up the pieces from home.

Some of the commentary responds directly to the impact of Covid-19 – on the growth of flexible working, for example, or the effects on the sharing model behind new low-emission electric urban transport. Elsewhere, however, the report adopt the position that office life will resume and that key trends will remain relevant – such as the growing use of neurodiverse people in delivering company innovation or the reliance on agile super-teams to improve productivity.
