Anaheim, CA — August 22, 2017 — Co-Founder of The Future of Work Community, Jacob Morgan, partnered with Targus, leader in the mobile accessories category, on an article that details the benefits of activity-based working. The flexible work trend encompasses both policy and office layout that includes spaces that best accommodate the task at hand.
“Organizations are rethinking the traditional models of ‘getting the job done,’” says Carolyn Perrier, Vice President of Marketing at Targus. “This article shows that the ability for an employee to choose where he or she works is key to productivity — and to business’ bottom lines.”
The article compiles Morgan’s research on 250 organizations in addition to recent studies on the topic by well-known organizations such as Gensler and CBRE. It includes the latest workspace trends and the steps that an enterprise can take to implement a successful activity-based work environment.
