Work isn’t confined to the office anymore. It’s a fluid process that allows you and your colleagues to be mobile throughout the day. Because what matters is getting the work done.

Companies realize the value of dedicated huddle spaces where small groups can come together as needed to collaborate, even if just for a few minutes.
