The landscape of the traditional workplace is currently changing and the usual cubicle-clad offices we’ve become accustomed to are being reimagined as a collaborative environment where professionals and small businesses co-exist, collaborate and build a new type of community. Welcome to coworking, the future of office spaces.
A conducive environment is equally important to the other factors that contribute to a productive offsite meeting. A well-designed space can make attendees feel more comfortable to freely engage in conversation.
