How people work at ITOKI office in Tokyo
What is activity based working? Activity‐based work is undertaken in a workplace in which individual employees are not assigned to a particular workstation. The workspace is configured to provide employees with access to a variety of tools and resources at various work points allowing them to conduct specific tasks including learning, focusing, collaborating, socializing, etc. over the course of the workday. In an ABW employees may move freely between work points as needed.
