The traditional office workspace as we’ve known it is dead. As is the career progression from interior cube space to private office to the corner with sweeping views. And for a new generation of millennial workers, it won’t be missed. Always mobile, connected, and looking to collaborate, they have a new way of working— and old notions of hierarchical architecture just won’t cut it. Which is just as well, because the economics of today’s workspaces are changing, too.

Traditional space is unused space.

  • Real estate is the second largest line item in the budget for operating expenses.
  • The average utilization for workspace between the hours of 8 AM and 5 PM is only 35-50%.
  • At any given time, over half your workspace is unused—so it’s time to rethink how that space gets used.

Huddle space is the new meeting space.

  • One answer is “huddle rooms,” informal spaces where local teams can quickly gather—however, these new spaces are rarely equipped to help workers succeed.
  • By adding video capabilities, teams can use these spaces to brainstorm, share content, and collaborate with colleagues around the globe.
