AIB has become the latest large Irish employer to indicate more employees will be working from home.
Ireland's largest bank said it would "examine the opportunities" presented by COVID-19 in areas like flexible working and digitisation of processes.
The positives and negatives of working from home were explored at length in Newstalk's Future of Work series, in an episode on the outlook for the office.
Presenters Gavin McLoughlin and Jess Kelly were joined by John McCartney, research director at Savills Ireland, to discuss whether the pandemic has had a tangible impact on the demand for office space.
Speaking on Newstalk Breakfast, meanwhile, AIB chief executive Colin Hunt said it was "beyond doubt" that AIB staff would spend more time working from home in future.
He added: "Once the COVID health emergency passes, once the COVID economic emergency passes, it's going to have a very fundamental impact on the shape of the operating environment."
He said the bank would also need to create more digital products as customers spend more of their lives online.
Mr Hunt joins the likes of Ulster Bank and Twitter in signalling that home working will become more prevalent at their organisations.
Ulster Bank has suspended a search for a new corporate headquarters, saying it would be making changes in how and where its employees work.
Twitter, meanwhile, said it would allow staff to work from home "forever" if they wished.
Many who have been working from home during the crisis have found they've been able to save money and avoid long commutes.
On the other hand, remote working can make it more difficult to build working relationships and learn from experienced colleagues.
