Golden Nuggets in Business Week

I am finally catching up on some Business Week tidbits that I found:

  • New chairs, focused on colloboration, at a good price point from Steelcase, Haworth, & Izzy are being introduced this year.
  • Telecommuting continues to be at the forefront of companies looking to offer better work/life options – for telecommuting to work, managers have to trust their employees
  • Daniel Pink‘s new book – The Adventures of Johnny Bunko – is a fantastic read.  Check out thoughts here & here.  Great career advice in simple to understand terms.
  • According to the article, 50 minutes is the average round-trip commute for most people.  Companies are doing more to promote alternative commute options such as buses equipped w/wi-fi.  Some companies are seeing a spike of 40% in bus commuters as gas prices continue to rise.
  • Too many emails on the weekend?  What about the office chatter?  Some companies are sending out a pop-up reminder to give it a restCheck out the articles here.
  • Face-time is still key when developing key contacts.
  • As much as some companies don't want to admit it, collaboration is becoming more a part of the way we do business.  Here are some interesting stats – check it out here!
