The new workplace
A generational shift and advances in technology are changing the work environment. Corporate America seeks to draw young workers who, rather than swinging hammers, wield mobile devices to generate ideas and produce results. Today’s college graduates have experienced an environment with more amenities than ever before, and with them comes new expectations about the workplace: “I’m going to work the way I want. I’m going to come up with an idea with my buddies at Starbucks and revolutionize the things.” This is the new and pervasive culture that is redefining corporate architecture.
