Activity-based workplaces are getting some attention from designers of corporate work spaces and from organisations themselves. These environments get employees out of their assigned cubicles and gives them a variety of spaces to use based on what they need to do and who they need to connect with throughout the day.
This is the second part (Part 1 here) of a series from Cisco which describes their vision for the workplace of the future and explains the changes we can bring to improve productivity.
Some of the benefits that activity-based spaces bring are:
Make and receive calls on any device, whether it’s a desk phone, laptop, mobile phone or tablet
Access email and corporate intranet anywhere on campus – wirelessly and securely
Find people in your organization, check availability, and connect using instant messaging, voice, video, desktop sharing, or conferencing
Engage in real-time, face-to-face collaboration and team building sessions – both planned and spontaneous – with colleagues around the globe
