Will the remote work craze sparked by COVID-10 sound a death knell for office buildings?

Elliott Holt was always firmly opposed to letting employees work from home.

“There’s no control over it,” says the CEO of a Nashville-based medical records company. “We like to be in control.”

With MediCopy growing at breakneck speed, its work-in-the office ethos spelled a feverish expansion of its physical presence in Nashville. After adding a second office two years ago, the firm was poised to lease a third last month.

But since the coronavirus pandemic has forced nearly all of MediCopy’s 200 employees to work from home, Holt has had an abrupt change of heart. He says he’ll let staffers continue to telecommute for the long term, prompting him to relinquish both of the additional offices, convert his headquarters into a training center, and save $350,000 a year in leasing costs.

“Things are working the way they are,” he says.
