Choosing tile ceilings may provide desired acoustic performance | Office Environments Of The Future | Scoop.it

Metal ceiling tiles are supplied with factory-formed apertures for luminaires and other services, reducing on-site waste and installation time.

Google’s Quirky New London HQ: Fit For Mr. Bean | Office Environments Of The Future | Scoop.it

When Tim Maly wrote about Google’s second London location last year, he called it a “giddy exercise in science fiction,” full of slick white details and retro-futuristic furniture. If Stanley Kubrick was the patron saint of that office, Mr. Bean must be the mascot of the new HQ.

A Federal Telework Report Card

A Federal Telework Report Card | Office Environments Of The Future | Scoop.it

The message that does not seem to be getting out about the new OPM telework report is that the report is just an initial baseline of where we are (or were in September 2011). There is a great section in the report on lessons learned. The key lesson I took from the report is that this is just the beginning of a new way of managing our workforce and it will take time to make everything work. It’s like going to the gym: thinking and talking about it doesn’t get you into better shape and once you go, it’s just the beginning of the process. Remember, it’s okay to make mistakes, just recognize them early and learn from them. This is the most important thing government can do to improve and we can all do in our own lives.

If culture is an organization’s only truly sustainable competitive advantage (which it is), and a winning BRAVE culture is comprised of behaviors, relationships, attitudes, values and the environment (which it is), then you need to think about how your work environment is communicating and informing your corporate culture (which it is whether you’re thinking about it or not).
