In recent decades, the corner office has diminished in importance as communal desks have increased and work settings have evolved. Many workers and occupations are no longer tied to an office. How are these changes affecting the culture of the workplace? How do they change how we design buildings? And perhaps most importantly, what do they mean for the future of cities and suburbs and the quest for locating jobs in places that attract top talent? Join workplace strategists Randy Howder and Laura Crescimano from Gensler as they share insights from their recent paper and SPUR’s broader Future of Work project.
