Workplace Re-Imagined: Merging the Experience for In-Office & Remote Employees

It is estimated that "millennials"—loosely defined as individuals born after 1984will make up 75 percent of the U.S. workforce by 2025. This digitally literate group is umbilically attached to its social networks and accustomed to real-time everything.
