In many companies, employees are working in an increasingly social, mobile, collaborative fashion. The conventional, boilerplate office programs and spaces that most of us are familiar with were never intended to support the complexity and unpredictability of these new work patterns.

This new workstyle is often referred to as "distributed work" - a combination of heads down “focus” work, formal and informal collaboration of varying duration, and social interaction that occurs in a wide variety of settings within the building, campus or other locations.

While many organizations currently have distributed work programs, there has been little organized information and few metrics to assist companies wanting to learn more about this emerging workspace strategy.

To address this need, Knoll conducted a study with a cross section of forty organizations across nine industries, having varying levels of familiarity with distributed work programs. In this presentation we share detailed real estate and facilities metrics, and a return on investment model, contrasting both the conventional model and distributed work approaches.
