The Workplace Leaders Series has often focused on whittling away at existing cost and utilizing automation; in this webinar, Dave Lathrop will take us to far end of the spectrum to explain what workers still need from buildings and workplace communities.
Some key takeaways:

- The changes to how companies are successful now (high performance teams and distributed knowledge) is changing the physical office and building needs.
- Physical and virtual braiding together is making distributed work a fully global, if not always fully comfortable, phenomenon.
