Flexibility, mobility, choice and comfort are expectations of today’s workforce. Informal, casual meeting nooks, cafés, lounges and outdoor spaces continue to dislodge traditional work environments such as benches and workstations, as more and more employers recognize that inspiring work environments attract top performers and fuel creativity and innovation.
There’s just one problem: We left the power that everyone needs for their technology, stuck in walls and floor boxes. So, people and teams – one by one and at the most inopportune times – are either forced to find another place to work to recharge their devices, or remain stuck without a working device. Even with longer battery life on many devices, people tend to wait until their battery runs low before thinking about where to recharge. Workflow is disrupted and people grow increasingly frustrated.
