The office space of the future will need to do a much
better job of supporting telecommuting and overall productivity.
According to an April, 2000 survey of 650 Fortune 1000 and dot.com
managers by Cincinnati-based Hixson, a workplace design firm:
- Telecommuting and the mobile workforce are expected to triple over the next five years, with up to 50% of the workforce telecommuting
- The average worker will spend only 36% of his/her time in their work space
- When telecommuters work on premises at their employer's office locations, they feel unsatisfied with and under served by the facilities available to them
- Offices of the future need to do much better job of supporting telecommuting and overall productivity
