People today want (and expect) options for where to eat, drink, work, play and live. They’re rejecting the “sea of sameness” in favor of curated options (gluten-free, organic, locally-sourced, lavender and rosemary vodka cocktail anyone?). In this “culture of choice”, how can the workplace cater to this trend, providing a variety of destinations where people really want to work?
Experience Forrer’s take on a curated workplace by joining us for the reveal of our biggest showroom renovation in more than 20 years. Sample hundreds of flavors from local purveyors while exploring a variety of workplace destinations that support employees’ desire to choose where and how they work best, without compromising on performance.
