The results of the recent Regus and Unwired Ventures report on making radical savings by adopting new ways of working, based on understanding the needs of four generations of workers, represent a theme that is at the heart of a couple of new design books from Gower: New Demographics New Workspace: Office Design for the Changing Workforce (Jeremy Myerson, Jo-Anne Bichard and Alma Erlich) and Re-imagining the Office: The New Workplace Challenge  (Adryan Bell). It’s encouraging to see the mainstream realising that radical, sustainable, cost saving does require a new way of working; some lessons here for national governments desparately looking for cost and efficiency savings perhaps?
