Does the Olympics herald the death of the office?

That's the suggestion by Jacobina Plummer, whose marvellous job title at Unilever is 'agile working programme lead', writing at Personnel Today. Here's a snippet:
"I believe that the Olympics could be the catalyst that many companies need to reinvent the office, adopting a new flexible approach to working that benefits both employees and business.... Along with greater productivity, reduced impact on the environment, a measured increase in engagement and productivity scores, as well as our ability to attract and retain talent, it's clear to see that agile working meets business needs."

  1. Honestly, whenever I read or hear about "reinventing the office", I can't help but feel for the employees. With the probably lay-offs and restructuring that's going to happen, just about the only thing affected employees can do is hope they have a PPLIC plan to cover them just in case.
