Employers are discovering that there is a better way for people to work and the government is no exception. Worker satisfaction equals worker productivity and designing the work space is a key element in developing both. Freedom and flexibility are important components of how we work today. In today’s mobile age of technology, workers are no longer tied to their desks. Interaction and collaboration are becoming increasingly mobile functions.Cafes and lounge areas complete with Wi-Fi offer spaces for lively discussions. Group meeting areas provide sources for teleconferencing and telecommuting, creating spaces of activity and interaction. Spaces for quiet activity are created separately, so that workers can access those spaces when needed.Companies like Knoll are skilled at creating a variety of works spaces for various types of collaboration, from team meetings to community spaces. They understand that technology has introduced a new standard of working effectively with one another and create work spaces to accommodate those needs. Offices are designed to facilitate new ways of working and furnishings and technology must complement one another in a seamless way.
