Solutions for Flexible Workers

Flexible workers are the epitome of whatever it takes to get the job done. They’ll be found collaborating from their home office, shared office spaces,  personal desk, and on-the-go. Providing them seamless transitions is essential.

 

FOR ORGANIZATIONS

We can help you profile your organization to identify workforce communication needs.

Overview

A flexible worker should feel productive at home, in the office, and in other locations

Spaces

Highly mobile in and out of the office. They’re likely to be okay with un-assigned seating since they spend more time in conference rooms. Support for this group includes access to different video-enabled rooms and huddle spaces.
