Do you think extended offsites will become a thing post COVID?

Now that WFH is a thing and companies are saving big on office rent, do you think they will go on extended work trips to Hawaii or Bali and rent a villa for the team and work from there for few weeks to a month? Like they could incorporate yoga and meditation and hiking trips so it doubles up as team bonding + getting shit done.

I disagree that companies are saving rent with WFH. No, exotic travel is not cost-saving, and infrastructure is too important to getting work done to be isolated and distracted by surroundings. A huge percentage of people are not as productive WFH, so savings in rent is offset by more inefficient work habits.


For those interested in this lifestyle (and it is a lifestyle choice, not a business choice), there are already a number of work-from-anywhere agencies that book destination stays by the month.
