The ideal workplace strikes a balance between people (HR), place (facilities), and technology (IT). Today, the work styles and expectations of younger generations coupled with accelerating technological advances are putting pressure on the workplace to rapidly adapt or risk becoming irrelevant. The modern day workplace has not changed significantly since Robert Probst introduced the cubicle 50 years ago. We have reached a tipping point where new ways of working are disrupting conventional notions of the work environment. We are seeing workplaces that look familiar in many respects but are designed around choice, balance and focus to meet the demands of today's enlightened worker. Overturning conventions to create better work environments is often a simple matter of re framing stories about the work environment. Because, the way we are working isn't working.
