    Francisco Gimeno - BC Analyst When the Pandemic accelerated the concept of flexible work (out of the office, or hybrid working in and out of the office), some companies have returned to full office work alleging that social interaction is needed for ideas to circulate and innovation to happen, and some have got the opposite towards a digital work' framework. However, many more are becoming just flexible, depending on the sector and even the different departments which allow more or less flexibility to work digitally and out of office. This said, this is becoming a revolution. New generations don't work into cubicles or offices even if well decorated and beautiful, if they see other ways of doing things. At the end we will probably see a mixture of the positive aspects of an office culture with the infinite possibilities of working anywhere anytime. Not everybody not every company not every Feld will go the same path at the same time, though.
