How your office is going to change
The office space has changed over the last few decades, with cubicles slowly phased out in favor of open work spaces that allowed for more collaboration. Things are now changing again. It turns out that people didn't want to be crammed into open work spaces at all times, listening to each other's conversation and being an easy target for chatty coworkers. Now offices are moving to what The New York Times has described as a "palette of places," where workers can sit, stand or even lay down in different environments, whether a living room-style space or a quiet nook. While this type of office space has already become popular at newer tech firms, older companies like Microsoft, IBM and General Electric are adopting these spaces. • What kind of office space works best for you?
