Trend #2 Distributed Teams, Office Optional

Distributed Teams, Office Optional Collaboration tools are making an office optional for the best companies
Distributed Teams, Office Optional They use their offices for (some) meetings and more like co-working spaces with hot swap desks
Distributed Teams, Office Optional Translation: you can work from the office, but you don’t have to
