In the previous building I worked in, we had on the 5th and last floor one unique room which was used as a simple "medic" room - with a bed and a medicine cupboard, no windows so always dark. This has been used by many as a room for a quick nap.
Just wondering my company is moving shortly and some one in the management side has come up with the great idea of no-one having a set 'work station' and each desk would be occupied by who ever wants it.
This is due to all the big Tech companies like Apple & Google doing that so it must be a good idea. I mean I like having a home base, also the amount of stuff I have in my draws means I am loathed to give up my desk. Does this mean and I quote 'I have a toe in the spectrum' (I take that to mean ADHD) or is it normal? (I am also under the impression that at least Google had given it up)...
Microsoft too. I guess it works for some people, but not for programmers, which Microsoft has also noticed. Their programmers have their own desks.
I fail to see why ANYBODY would want and appreciate such a system. It has way more drawbacks than advantages in my opinion. I certainly couldn't work like that...

Because you are capable of rational thought.
One place I worked in, one of the senior managers would change the seating plan the office every three months. This is all she did, she contributed nothing else to the business so I am guessing that the time in between was spent planning for the next seating change
