  • From the New York Times: “It might not seem that Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump have much in common. But they share something important with each other and with a whole lot of their fellow citizens. Both are job seekers. And at ages 68 and 70, respectively, they’re part of a large group of Americans who are radically upending the concept of retirement.”
  • Gensler‘s 2016 Workplace Survey is out, with lots of new numbers on the link between the workplace and innovation.
  • A competitor for WeWork? From Fast Company: “While plenty of smaller companies offer coworking in a myriad of flavors—focusing, for instance, on designers or startups—they’re not a significant threat to WeWork’s business. No Dunkin’ Donuts has emerged. A bigger potential problem for WeWork as it strives to live up to its $16 billion valuation would be if the landlords and companies it works with build their own hip office spaces. [But] [a] new outlet created by two of WeWork’s former employees aims to help landlords and corporations do just that.”
