Abstract

It may not happen this month or even this year. But it will happen: Your unit''s workspace will be rebuilt, reorganized, refurnished, or moved to entirely new quarters. Be prepared: new offices don''t look much like the old. This isn''t just about aesthetics--it''s the realization that old- style offices don''t suit the work being done in today''s jobs. Companies believe a redesigned environment can simultaneously boost productivity and keep the inhabitants happy. HMU guides you through some common redesigns and the trends behind them. Includes a sidebar on the newly designed offices of the Ernst & Young Center for Business Innovation.
