As we’ll see, certain elements which we consider part of the normal workplace are being abandoned by experimenting companies in favor of new models.
But why are they being abandoned?
For some, it’s about reducing overhead. For others, it’s about finding new ways to combat the traditional problems a growing company faces. It could be about opening up a broader talent pool, increasing adaptability, or navigating uncertain economic environments.
The ultimate goal is to make the company more successful.

It’s undoubtedly challenging for marketers to continue providing a seamless customer experience across different digital channels such as social media.
Thankfully, though, factors such as artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics can make multi-channel customer experiences engaging across the entire customer journey — from product consideration all the way to purchase.
