Silicon Valley’s workforce is falling out of love with massive tech campuses. Experts predict what will take its place are networks of satellite offices

  • Instead, tech companies will likely adopt a “hub-and-spoke” model, with satellite offices peppered across the US.
  • 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.
  • 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.
