Ground-breaking ideas such as ‘Office 4.0’ crop up faddishly in the media, then vanish as they are subject to closer inspection or stick around long enough to become misunderstood.

Sedus se:connects – because good connections are everything

Flexible work depends on two things; connectivity and a fully charged battery. A growing number of organizations are embracing the chance to do away with dedicated workstations and as a general rule, larger organisations tend to offer agile workers a greater choice of facilities.
