Midmarket executives should be aware of new trends in work environments.

Current commercial real estate trends show that traditional space users – law firms, accounting firms, ad agencies and even major public real estate companies – are now looking to edgy tech companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google for inspiration in both redesigning their offices and thinking creatively about where they locate. Traditional tenants who want to “fit in” with this “new economy” are now looking at space in an entirely different fashion, one that reflects the new digitally connected workspace. This shift is not only great for employee morale, but also for a company’s business model and bottom line.
