Episode 4
The dynamic relationship between workplace and hospitality has a long history. From business trips and working lunches to in-office amenities and even workplace design, we've seen the line between work and leisure become more blurred.

If work can happen in cafes and hotel lobbies, how can offices become an exciting destination that fully immerses employees in a unique and memorable experience, that makes them want to keep coming back?

In this episode, we explore how the hospitality industry might hold the answers to creating the future of work.
