  • The Wall Street Journal has five strategies for attracting and retaining top talent.
  • Co.Design takes a look at Dropbox‘s new headquarters: “We asked all our employees to sketch out their hourly experience, and how they liked to work,” said Glara Ahn, Dropbox’s spaces design lead. “From there, it became clear that employees not only liked a lot of variety in their work environments depending on what they were doing, they also liked being able to switch up their spaces depending on how they were feeling.”
