Generation Y and Your Office Space
I recently posted a whitepaper from Colliers International that discusses the implications of Generation Y entering the workforce and how it might impact the real estate market. We are just beginning to learn how this new generation of workers will impact the office space environment and design. Here is a video from CNNMoney and a whitepaper from Haworth on workplace issues centered around Generation Y.
Many people assume that younger workers can process information in fundamentally different ways than their older counterparts. This paper from Haworth reviews research relevant to that assumption and explores the association between office design and communication styles.
