Office Campus Design to Change as Silicon Valley’s Workforce Falls Out of Love with Massive Technology Campuses


Silicon Valley’s workforce is falling out of love with massive tech campuses, and experts predict what will take its place are networks of satellite office, reports Business Insider.

“The future of the tech office isn’t clustered in Silicon Valley, experts told Business Insider. Instead, tech companies will likely adopt a “hub-and-spoke” model, with satellite offices peppered across the US,” reported Business Insider.

In a post-coronavirus era, employees may have a “remote-first” work schedule, and commute to a satellite office when they need to from wherever they live, Business Insider said.

Business Insider said that Amazon, Apple, and Uber have already started to adopt something similar. Amazon recently announced a $1.4 billion investment in expanding its offices in six US cities outside of Seattle, while Uber and Apple have each made major expansions in Texas.

The online magazine quoted one expert as saying that this model allows companies to keep the “prestige” of a Bay Area headquarters, but expand their talent pools outside Silicon Valley and save money on labor costs.
