Fitbit's chief marketing officer, Tim Rosa, quietly left the company back in May. A spokesperson told Business Insider that Mark Silverio, SVP, America Sales, has been given a broader role that includes global marketing. Rosa was a key player at the company. His departure comes as Google is trying to close a deal to acquire Fitbit. Are you a Fitbit or Google insider with more to share? Contact this reporter using encrypted email ([email protected]) or encrypted messaging apps Signal/Telegram (628-228-1836). Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Fitbit's chief marketing officer, Tim Rosa, has left the company, Business Insider has learned. Rosa, who departed back in May, according to his LinkedIn profile, oversaw brand and product marketing, advertising, events, as well as many of Fitbit's strategic partnerships. A Fitbit spokesperson confirmed the departure to Business Insider and said that Mark Silverio, SVP, America Sales, now taken a broader role that includes global marketing. The company did not comment on whether it would eventually appoint a new CMO. Tim Rosa did not respond to Business Insider's request for comment. Rosa, who had been with the company since 2013, was instrumental in Fitbit's attempt to reposition itself more as aa services and data company – a way to fight back against Apple's growing dominance in the wearables space. "We want to move away from being looked at as a device company," he told AdAge last year. "We want people to be on Fitbit, as opposed to having a Fitbit." The departure comes as Fitbit is in the process of being acquired by Google. The $2.1 billion deal was announced last November, but won't close until antitrust regulators give it the green light. Last week, the European Commission announced it would launch a deeper probe into the deal due to concerns over how Google may use the data collected from Fitbit devices for advertising purposes. The prolonged investigation will extend the EU's deadline to pass or veto the deal until Dec. 9. The deal is also being looked into by the Justice Department in the US, while Australia's Competition and Consumer Commission has also raised concerns over the data Google will acquire.SEE ALSO: In their recent showdown with Congress, the tech titans argued they hadn't grown too powerful.

The advertising-technology industry hires internationally for many technical roles including engineering and product management. The Trade Desk and Roku — two of the largest firms that employ adtech staff — have market caps that exceed ad agency holding companies Publicis, Omnicom, and Interpublic Group. Business Insider analyzed the US Office of Foreign Labor Certification's 2019 disclosure data for six big adtech firms: Xandr, MediaMath, Amobee, Magnite, Roku, and The Trade Desk to see how much companies pay for roles. High-paying jobs for a director of engineering and VP of product management paid, respectively, $237,000 and $200,000, while lower-paying roles like a revenue operations specialist paid $62,000. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The adtech industry hires talent from all the world to create products and business models that help advertisers fine-tune their ad targeting. Similar to tech giants like Facebook, Google, and Amazon, adtech firms particularly look for international talent to fill technical roles like engineering, data scientists, and product management. Adtech firms have been facing growing pressure as advertisers slash spending during the coronavirus and investors' demand for solid returns has caused funding for some of the oldest firms like ad networks to dry up. Some smaller firms have sold or adopted new business models, while The Trade Desk and Roku have gotten bigger — market caps for those two companies combined now exceed the combined market caps for advertising agency holding companies WPP, Omnicom, Publicis, and Interpublic Group. Consolidation aside, some adtech firms continue to hire in areas like engineering and business development. US-based adtech companies file paperwork when they hire international employees and are required to list base salary. The US Department of Labor's Office of Foreign Labor Certification releases that information every year in one huge data dump. Business Insider analyzed data for adtech roles from six large firms —Amobee, Magnite, MediaMath, Roku, The Trade Desk, and Xandr — to see what adtech companies paid employees. The data is from the companies' fiscal year 2019 disclosure data for all foreign workers applying for both permanent green card visas and temporary H-1B, H1B1, and E-3 visas. The data does not include every type of visa, pay rates for US-born employees, or compensation beyond base salary. The listed salaries are determined by "prevailing wages," or industry standards for similar jobs with similar qualifications, which are also listed in the OFLC data. Here is a look at how adtech salaries break down by company and role. Spokespeople for the six companies either declined to comment or did not respond to requests for comment. Amobee paid an account executive $125,000 Singtel-owned Amobee has most recently focused on data-targeted TV ads and has ramped up adtech hiring as it has acquired companies like Turn and Videology to rival Facebook and Google's tech stack. LinkedIn data shows that Amobee has 860 employees. According to OFLC data, the company filed for at least 49 visas in 2019. Here are salaries and salary ranges for jobs at Amobee: Security engineer: $90,000 Account executive: $125,000 Senior account executive: $135,000 Senior salesforce developer: $155,000 Lead research engineer: $117,000 to $144,000 Software developer, applications: $121,077 to $148,000 Senior technical program manager: $150,000 Senior software engineer: $125,000 to $180,000 Principal software engineer: $200,000 Magnite paid a director of product management $196,000 Magnite is the product of a merger earlier this year of two longtime adtech firms, Rubicon Project and Telaria. The company laid off 8% of employees in May due to the coronavirus and decision to eliminate overlapping roles of the combined workforce. Magnite has about 280 employees, according to LinkedIn data. OFLC data shows Magnite filed for about 16 visas in 2019. Here are salaries and salary ranges for jobs at Rubicon Project last year before the merger: Revenue operations specialist: $62,000 Analyst: $65,000 Data scientist: $110,000 Software development engineer: $107,000 to $140,000 Software development engineering manager: $159,289 Director of product management: $196,000 Lead technical product manager: $138,000 to $198,000 MediaMath paid a client services lead $70,000 One of the oldest adtech firms, New York-based MediaMath has raised $607.5 million, including a $225 million round from private equity firm Searchlight Capital Partners in 2018. The firm has around 580 employees, according to LinkedIn data. The firm sells a demand-side platform that agencies and brands use to buy ads programmatically. In June, Digiday reported that MediaMath hired investment bank Centerview Partners to explore a possible sale. According to OFLC data, MediaMath filed for at least 14 visas in 2019. Here are salaries and salary ranges for jobs at MediaMath: Associate, supply analytics: $65,000 to $80,000 Client services lead: $70,000 Product management manager: $71,000 Senior analyst of revenue analytics and insights: $66,000 to $86,000 Senior software engineer: $135,000 Software engineer: $108,000 to $137,000 Director of engineering: $160,000 to $180,000 VP of product management, intelligence: $200,000 to $250,000 Roku paid a senior software designer for its ad platform up to $350,000 Roku became the earliest entry in the streaming video player space when CEO and future Netflix VP Anthony Wood launched the company in 2002. It was later incorporated in 2008 after he left Netflix to get Roku's streaming platforms or "sticks" into more homes and, eventually, turning the company into an ad giant. Roku went public after building an ad infrastructure and selling placements on its homescreen and remote control, launched a self-serve ad platform, and acquired DSP dataxu for $150 million in 2019. The company reported a recent boost in revenue thanks to growth in its ad business, and it has also begun licensing its operating system to smart TV makers. But it also faces challenges from the rise of smart TVs that do not use hardware or software from Roku or prime competitor Amazon, according to a recent report by The Information. Roku employs 1,100 people, according to its most recent financial results. Per OFLC data, the company filed for at least 96 visas in 2019. Here are some salaries and salary ranges for jobs across the company:  Analyst of inventory management: $95,000 to $110,000 Senior quality assurance engineer of new products: $130,000 Software engineer in test of advertising platform: $150,000 Senior software data engineer of advertising platform: $178,500 Senior software engineer of new products for Roku TV: $235,000 Data research analyst: $225,000 to $246,500 Senior data engineer: $167,200 to $250,098 Senior software engineer of advertising platform: $154,669 to $350,000 The Trade Desk paid a senior software engineer up to $265,000 Demand-side platform The Trade Desk has become the biggest and most valuable player in its space by cozying up to the ad agencies that serve as middlemen between clients and media companies. According to its most recent annual summary, The Trade Desk employs around 1,300 people. The Trade Desk hasn't been immune to the effects of the pandemic; shares plummeted nearly one-third in March as advertisers slashed budgets. But on an August 6 earnings call, CEO Jeff Green said his company is positioned to benefit from a rapidly changing TV landscape as more consumers stream their entertainment and news and advertising that might normally go to cable networks increasingly finds its way to connected TV. The Trade Desk filed for approximately 16 temporary US visas in 2019, according to the OFLC data set. These are salaries and salary ranges for jobs across the company: Data support analyst: $48,600 to $72,900 Senior associate of learning and development: $75,355 Senior account manager: $79,200 Director of business development: $120,000 to $150,000 Senior technical account manager: $138,000 to $155,250 Software engineer: $117,800 to $176,700 Senior software engineer: $233,000 to $265,000 Xandr paid a director of engineering $237,000 Xandr is AT&T's advertising business that was recently combined into WarnerMedia and is led by chief business officer Kirk McDonald. Xandr has more than 1,400 employees, according to LinkedIn data. Before AT&T formed Xandr in 2018, the telecom company acquired adtech firm AppNexus for a reported $1.6 billion to build up its adtech stack. Xandr is building a so-called advanced advertising business that uses telecom and TV data to target audiences across devices. The company made $362 million in the second quarter. According to DoL data, Xandr applied for about 46 US visas in 2019.  Here are salaries and salary ranges for jobs at Xandr: Associate director of product management: $129,000 to $185,000 Software engineer: $134,000 to $175,000 Senior monetization analyst: $140,000 Senior salesforce developer: $150,000 Senior systems administrator: $149,000 Director of engineering: $237,000 Read more of Business Insider's coverage of adtech companies: Meet 18 firms solving companies' giant problems selling and advertising on Amazon Walmart is pushing harder into advertising with a new tool that shows if people buy a product after seeing an ad for it Funding is drying up for digital ad firms. 2 founders turned investors who weathered the 2008 crash say what adtech companies can do to survive.

Since the outset of the coronavirus pandemic, the potential role of animals in catching and spreading the disease has been closely examined by scientists. This is because the virus that causes COVID-19 belongs to the family of coronaviruses that cause disease in a variety of mammals. The evidence suggests that this virus arose in bats and my colleagues at the University of Glasgow have recently determined that the sub-type of coronavirus to which the virus belongs has been circulating in the bat population since the 1940s. So it makes sense for researchers to ponder whether the virus can be transmitted… This story continues at The Next Web

Every Monday we’ll answer your questions on Covid-19 and health in a feature published online. You can submit a question here. This week, HuffPost UK reader Jo asked: As Covid-19 spreads through water droplets, how can swimming pools possibly be safe?Swimming pools are back open in parts of the UK – but some people are sceptical of whether it’s safe to use them. So, what’s the deal?During the peak of the virus, no cases were reported of Covid-19 spreading in swimming pools or through water. But that doesn’t mean it’s without risks. “The risk is not from the SARS-CoV-2 virus surviving and transmitting through the water per se,” says Dr Julian Tang, associate professor in respiratory sciences at the University of Leicester. “The water itself, with the standard bleach or other detergent-based disinfectants, will be effective in killing this virus – it is lipid-enveloped and fragile.”The risk really occurs above the water, he says, from swimmers chatting at the end of their lanes when they’re within typical conversational distances of 0.5m to 1m. This is because the main route the virus spreads is in droplets propelled into the air when a person speaks, coughs, sings, sneezes or laughs.Submit a coronavirus health question to HuffPost UK.Professor Vincenzo Romano Spica is an expert in public health from the University of Rome and one of the lead authors of a paper on swimming pool safety during Covid-19. He tells HuffPost UK he believes it’s safe to go swimming – and he would feel comfortable going swimming himself, in Italy, where he lives.Chlorinated pools are considered safest, as they’re maintained and regularly disinfected, which can help to deactivate the virus. The World Health Organisation (WHO) suggests “swimming in a well-maintained, properly chlorinated pool is safe”.That said, there are some other key risk factors to think about first. Are cases in your area rising?A key thing to consider before reaching for your goggles is how many people in your local area (or the area where you plan to swim) have Covid-19.In places where cases are rising and lockdowns are being enforced, swimming pools would be more risky to visit than areas where there are a handful of cases. You can find out how many cases are in your local area.In Italy and other European countries where incidence is low, Prof Romano Spica believes it’s safe to swim. But in parts of the USA, India and other areas where outbreaks are emerging or present, it’s a no-go.Related... Coronavirus Is A Minefield. We’ll Help You Understand It. How busy is the pool?WHO recommends people avoid crowded swimming pools and keep at least one metre away from people who sneeze or cough. Among epidemiologists, two metres is still considered to be the optimum distance. Crowding and personal distancing are key factors, more than water, says Prof Romano Spica, so the emptier the pool is, the better. Under UK government guidance, leisure facilities should ensure an appropriate number of people are allowed in the swimming pool at any one time.How close are you to other swimmers?“It’s possible that exposure may occur in adjacent lanes if swimmers are too close together,” says Dr Tang. He offers the example of an infected swimmer coming to the surface and exhaling strongly before taking their next breath, just as another swimmer comes the other way and passes them, inhaling strongly before their next stroke. There would be potential to breathe in the virus.“But the frequency of this type of encounter would be rare,” he points out, “and if the lanes are wider and each swimmer stays within the middle of their lane, this reduces the transmission risk further as this is effectively a form of social distancing.”Related... Here's Some Serious Pool Porn To Get You Through The Heatwave What is the pool used for?Find out what the pool is used for before you decide to visit. If, for instance, the pool is used for exercise and sport, there’s likely to be greater physical distancing (as there’ll hopefully be lanes in place) and not as many people using it. It’s also less likely there’ll be bodily fluids knocking around than, say, a pool on holiday. But on the other hand, pools that form part of residential complexes or are aimed at allowing people of different ages to sunbathe, refresh, play and socialise, can often result in overcrowded conditions, which would pose more of a risk. There’s also more of a chance that people will be shouting and laughing – both of which can spread the virus to people nearby.Indoor vs outdoor pools – which is best?HuffPost UK reader Brian asked whether it’s safe to go swimming in indoor pools. In the UK it’s deemed safe to swim in indoor pools, which opened at the end of July. But outdoor pools are considered safer.“Outdoor pools have the advantage of sunlight and wind to destroy the virus and/or blow it away before it reaches the other person,” says Dr Tang. Dr Tang adds that swimming indoors (or outdoors) wouldn’t be high risk if the lanes are wider, with only one swimmer per lane; and if swimmers don’t talk to each other at the end of their lanes, or before entering or after leaving the pool. He concludes: “Being antisocial is being safe!”If you’re worried about transmission in an indoor setting, arrive in your swimming gear, so you don’t have to use changing rooms, and take your own equipment/aids. This is advised by Swim England. Use hand sanitiser before entering and when leaving the pool, too. To protect others, in the event that you might be asymptomatic, you could consider wearing a face cover when you’re not using the pool.If you feel nervous about returning, phone your leisure centre beforehand to see what practices they have in place to keep people safe. You could also ask what the least busy times are to visit, for peace of mind. Related... 10 Of The UK's Best Outdoor Swimming Pools To Live The Lido Life How Likely Is A Second Wave – And Can It Be Prevented?

(Queensland University of Technology) Modelling the predicted movements of pervasive sap-sucking tiny insects before they infest banana crops has the potential to become a key tactic in the fight against a devastating virus, according to QUT research. Banana bunchy top virus (BBTV) is an aphid-transmitted banana disease that has been in Australia since 1913. QUT researchers have designed a model that tracked the probability of a banana plant being infected by aphids that carried the disease, with the findings published in PLOS Computational Biology.

Bill Gates says there's one massive problem with COVID-19 tests in the US: results take too long to come back. He said in a recent interview with WIRED that the majority of US COVID-19 tests are "completely garbage" and "wasted." To solve the problem of slow testing, Gates said medical providers shouldn't receive payment for COVID-19 tests unless they can produce results within 48 hours. He also called on Mark Zuckerberg to do more to combat the spread of misinformation and conspiracy theories on Facebook. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Bill Gates believes one of the biggest roadblocks to effective COVID-19 testing in the US is "stupidity," he said in an interview with WIRED published Friday. Specifically, Gates said most US tests are "completely garbage" because it takes so long to return results. Coronavirus tests across the US regularly take more than a week to return results, frustrating public health authorities who rely on timely testing data. "Well, that's just stupidity," Gates said when asked about the delays in testing results. "The majority of all US tests are completely garbage, wasted." The Microsoft founder-turned-philanthropist said he thinks there's a simple solution: Medical providers should only receive payment for tests if they return results within 48 hours. "If you don't care how late the date is and you reimburse at the same level, of course they're going to take every customer. Because they are making ridiculous money," Gates said. "You have to have the reimbursement system pay a little bit extra for 24 hours, pay the normal fee for 48 hours, and pay nothing [if it isn't done by then]. And they will fix it overnight." For years, Gates had warned that the US was unprepared for a massive pandemic. Since the onset of COVID-19, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has heavily funded testing and vaccine research. Gates himself has also become the target of conspiracy theories stemming from his high-profile advocacy for a more robust response to the virus, including a false theory that Gates plans to inject people with microchips under the pretense of administering vaccines. In Friday's WIRED interview, Gates acknowledged that conspiracy theories spread like wildfire on social media and suggested that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg should do more to combat misinformation on Facebook. "I like Mark, I think he's got very good values, but he and I do disagree on the trade-offs involved there," Gates said. "We give literally tens of billions for vaccines to save lives, then people turn around saying, 'No, we're trying to make money and we're trying to end lives.' That's kind of a wild inversion of what our values are and what our track record is." Gates also weighed in on the potential Microsoft acquisition of TikTok's US and international operations, calling President Trump's interference in the deal "pretty bizarre."

A 17-year-old New Jersey high school student has developed an Android app that allows users to record their interactions with police and then notify a loved one or share it to social media, like Instagram. Aaditya Agrawal told Business Insider that he was compelled to create the app in part after a close friend of his, who is Black, was pulled over without cause. "You see it in the news all the time, but when it happens to one of your close friends — and he tells you how it felt for that to happen to him — then you understand the significance," he said. Accountability in law enforcement has been thrust into the national discourse surrounding how Black Americans are treated by police even more so since the police killing of Minneapolis resident George Floyd in May. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. In 2018, Apple launched a series of Siri Shortcuts, one of which allowed users to record police interactions and then text a designated contact when they are pulled over with the footage. The app, dubbed Police, has seen an uptick in use as the nation has erupted in widespread protests against police brutality, law enforcement's abuse of power, and systemic racism following the police killing of Minneapolis resident George Floyd. Holding law enforcement more accountable has become a centerpiece of the national discussion, and technology could play a major role in it. That mission has driven a 17-year-old New Jersey high school student to create an app that not only more easily records your interaction with police when you are pulled over but is equipped to instantly share the footage on social media platforms, including Instagram and WhatsApp. Aaditya Agrawal, a student at Livingston High School in New Jersey, told Business Insider he's been working on the app, dubbed PulledOver, for a while. But he has focused more heavily on its development over the past few months in light of the renewed sense of urgency surrounding law enforcement's treatment of Black Americans. And he also has a personal motivation in seeing the app come to fruition — Agrawal said a friend of his, who is Black, recently was pulled over seemingly without cause. "You see it in the news all the time, but when it happens to one of your close friends — and he tells you how it felt for that to happen to him — then you understand the significance," Agrawal said. Here's how it works: You can download PulledOver in the Google Play Store, and you don't have to sign in or create an account to use the app. Simply add an emergency contact, and that's it. "The last thing you want to be worrying about is how an app works when you get pulled over," he said. If you get pulled over, you launch the app, which will take you to your phone's native camera app. Press record, then when you're done, you'll be automatically taken back to the PulledOver app and given the option to notify your emergency contact, or share it to social media. You can also share the footage with others who use the PulledOver app, a feature that Agrawal said he hasn't seen yet. "It's almost like a community where you can share videos — you can see how other people are being treated," he said. Agrawal said another intended purpose for the app is to elevate the "many good police officers as well." "If you share good police officers and you celebrate them, hopefully, it will inspire others to become better as well," Agrawal said. The app officially launched on June 20, about a month after Floyd was killed. Agrawal said the app currently has 350 installs, and he has yet to do any paid marketing for it yet, instead opting for word-of-mouth through friends and family. The app is currently only available for Android smartphones in the Google Play Store, but Agrawal said he'll have hopefully successfully translated it into iOS language by the end of the year. He's also currently working with major organizations involved in the Black Lives Matter movement, like Black Youth Project 100 (BYP100) and Campaign Zero, to build an app specifically for their communities. But Agrawal said he's hesitant for the service to be labeled as merely a piece of software. "I'm not really going for the app market," he said. "It's more like a tool for people who can use something like this when they need it the most."SEE ALSO: 26 simple charts to show friends and family who aren't convinced racism is still a problem in America Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Here's what it's like to travel during the coronavirus outbreak
The coronavirus outbreak will have long-lasting effects on US workers, particularly when it comes to the open office made popular by Silicon Valley companies like Facebook and Google.  Experts say that the open office was never very positive for employees, who reported feeling less productive and more distracted, got sick more easily, and felt pressured to work longer and harder because of their lack of privacy.  When offices begin reopening, whether that's this year or next summer, we're likely to see a shift away from the open floor plan.  "Open floor plans are most definitely going to disappear," Rhiannon Staples, chief marketing officer at human resources management company Hibob, told Business Insider. "I feel like it was already on its way out and this was the kick it needed to get it out the door." Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. As the coronavirus continues its spread, unabated, in many parts of the US, it's becoming increasingly apparent that a return to "normal" is still far in the future. That's true for American office workers, many of whom have been working from their homes since March. But when workers are able to return to work en masse, whether that's this winter or a year from now, the office probably won't look as they left it.  Corporations nationwide are considering how to reopen spaces, from new ventilation systems systems to socially distanced elevators and closed-off kitchens. But the biggest change might be to the space as a whole.  Experts predict that the wide-open office, popularized by tech industry titans like Google and Facebook, will become a thing of the past. The fad, already becoming passé, has become almost dangerous in the face of the virus — employees often sit packed in large, open rooms, with desks placed close enough to reach out and touch your coworker.  But don't mourn the death of that open-office floor plan just yet: though it was once heralded as the key to employee collaboration and productivity, it was never all that great for workers anyway.  The rise of the open office Beginning in the early aughts, American tech workers began leaving cubicles behind in favor of an open-floor-plan office space.  It all started with Google, which revealed its new headquarters, the Googleplex, in 2005. Based in Mountain View, California, it was — and still is — unlike any office in America. It had a bowling alley! And sleep pods! And even sand volleyball courts!  The Googleplex, with its open design and flexible spaces, was heralded as the future.  "The attitude was: We're inventing a new world, why do we need the old world?" Clive Wilkinson, the architect who designed the Googleplex, told Fast Company last year.   Soon, companies started coming to Wilkinson and saying they wanted to by like Google, he told Fast Company. Not long after, Facebook followed suit, opening what it says is the biggest open-floor-plan office in the world: approximately 2,800 employees working in "one giant room," CEO Mark Zuckerberg said when it opened in 2015.  "We saw a big pendulum shift where everyone came out of private offices and big cubicles into the open office, and that was an epic fail, because one size does not fit all. The open office has gotten a really bad rap as a result of doing it really badly," Melissa Hanley, CEO of the design firm Blitz, which counts Microsoft and Instacart among its clients, told Business Insider. At the time, the idea was that if you broke down physical barriers between workers, it would break down metaphorical ones as well. Employees would be able to easily collaborate on projects and would be enticed to engage in a free-flow of ideas with their next-door neighbor. The company's CEO, once ensconced in a glass corner office, would now sit right out on the floor next to their employees, a person of the people.  But that's not exactly what happened.  Instead, employees put on headphones to shut out the noise that came along with wide-open spaces. They reported feeling stressed, anxious, and less likely to collaborate with those around them. In fact, a Harvard Business Review study from last year found that when a company switched to an open office, face-to-face interactions actually decreased by 70% — employees just communicated electronically instead.  And that wasn't the only problem. A prescient 2018 piece by Vice's Mark Hay argued that open offices are vectors for disease, with employees who work in them taking more sick days than those who work in enclosed offices.  "In the workplace, it only follows that if you're working in close proximity and handling objects and interacting closely with each other, it's a very easy route of transmission for germs, viruses, bacteria," Melissa Perry, a public-health researcher at George Washington University's Milken Institute School of Public Health, told Business Insider earlier this year. Socializing productivity But beyond the prevalence of germs, there's another downside of the open office, at least for employees.  "The open-plan office has always been in some ways in the interest of the company rather than the worker, because it socializes productivity," Melissa Gregg, Intel's chief technologist for user experience, recently told The New York Times. "It forces workers to watch each other's work, and it creates very few spaces of privacy for individual workers."  Mentally, there's a pressure that comes with open offices. Workers don't want to look like they're not working hard, or like they're ducking out early. As Jeff Pochepan argued in Inc Magazine in 2018, this means that workers may work longer hours or feel undue pressure to be "on" and engaged 100% of the time, since everyone can see them.  "I definitely think there's a concept within agile workplaces about accountability and thinking that you set something out that you're going to do and then you have to report back, did you do it," Hanley said. "I do think that the visual access to each other is probably feeding into that."  Tracy Brower, a sociologist and principal in the Applied Research + Consulting Group at furniture manufacturer Steelcase, likened open offices to manufacturing, where workers generally kept an even, steady pace until a "rate-buster" came in — someone who worked harder and faster, thereby pushing the whole group too much. "There's hustle culture where, I may not actually be more productive, but by goodness, I'm going to stay later than my boss, no matter what," Brower told Business Insider. "I think we can get caught up in working for the sake of working and being busy for the sake of being busy."  'The kick it needed to get it out the door' In the short term, the office is already changing. Companies are considering density like never before, spacing out workstations, limiting large groups in conference rooms and elevators, and placing partitions in between desks, almost like the cubicles of yore.  But these cosmetic alterations are likely to be the precursor to a bigger change. Even though a full return to the office still appears to be a long way off, experts agree that when we do return — perhaps in summer 2021, as Google and Facebook expect — we should expect some permanent changes.  "Open floor plans are most definitely going to disappear," Rhiannon Staples, chief marketing officer at human resources management company Hibob, told Business Insider. "I feel like it was already on its way out and this was the kick it needed to get it out the door." But Brower said she doesn't think the open office is 100% dead — it's just going to feel different than it did in early 2020.  "The pendulum has really swung toward open, open, open, and lots of density," Brower said. "I think what has now happened is we're starting to swing that pendulum way to the other side — more barriers, more boundaries, less density." While that mentality is critical for the safety of employees in the near future, Brower said she doesn't expect things to stay that way.  "I think what we will end up seeing is that pendulum landing somewhere a little bit close to the middle," Brower said. "This is actually our opportunity to reimagine, reinvent, use the coronavirus almost as an accelerator to get to places that are maybe even better than it would have been." SEE ALSO: With no mandate to shut down even if employees get sick, one expert calls Silicon Valley's reopening 'a very easy route of transmission' Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: How 'white savior' films like 'The Help' and 'Green Book' hurt Hollywood
