The Last Word: Common Desk’s Nick Clark on Why Introverts Just Might Need to Be in the Office, and More

by | Sep 19, 2022
Clark was a recent guest on Keurig's "Café Culture" podcast, which explored ideas about creating café culture from the coworking category.

But two topics jump out of the podcast: why it's important for introverts to be "prodded" into going back to the office, and why companies should look for "culture adds," not "culture fits."
