  • Kids are ‘welcome’ at a just a quarter of Europe’s coworking spaces and only two percent offer childcare. But times are changing, reports Sifted.
  • Office layouts have changed considerably over the last few decades. Commercial Café has seen cubicles canned in favor of open office layouts (and vice versa). But which one is really best for workers and employers alike?
  • Now that office walls have come down, workers are ducking into closet-sized “pods” for privacy and quiet. CityLab asks: Is this a retreat from the open office or the next phase of it?
  • The Conversation argues that open-plan offices are not inherently bad – you’re probably just using them wrong.
  • Workplace design and management is moving away from gut feel and anecdotal information to being more data driven, writes This Week in FM.
