According to CBRE’s latest research, in all occupations, employees only works 55% in office, and working at home, café shop, or taxi… in their remaining time. For most of the bosses only care about productivity while not controlling their time at office. Therefore, companies’ attention seems to focus on needs for changes, innovations in working space design.
