What is the perfect workplace? The answers to this question largely depend on individual needs and context, and can range from a private room to a collaborative space, a comfy sofa, or a coffee lounge.

When properly implemented, it can deliver cost savings and improvements in organisational performance and well-being. Besides offering many examples, the guide explains how ABW works and how to best implement it. Author Juriaan van Meel is an expert in construction briefing and workplace design.
