Who wants to work standing. Or sitting. At a shared desk. Or in a private cubicle. With colleagues. Or alone. Outside among greenery. Or inside in a cafe.
The office of the future does not center on open layouts or unassigned desks or the jettisoning of the office altogether in favor of finding an outlet and Internet connection just about anywhere.
Rather, it revolves around choice, both for employees seeking environments where they work best and for employers adapting to shifting needs, with the goal of getting talent in the door and enjoying the comforts of the workplace so much that they want to stay awhile.
