Tech companies and startups aren't the only companies rethinking work spaces for a new generation of workers. The global law firm Nixon Peabody has designed its new Washington, DC office with one thing in mind: collaboration.
"Usually the corner office is reserved for the partners," Jeff Lesk, Nixon Peabody's DC office managing partner told CNBC. "Here, it's an open meeting area where people can come and sit and work together."
The shift has gone from a traditional formal office to a futuristic feel that's traded corner offices for open work spaces with multi-colored couches.
