Find out consumer spending behavior specific to geographic location (e.g., how much does the average person in Portland spend on baked goods per year?)

A company’s physical work environment has a tremendous impact on productivity, profits and employee recruitment and retention. As more firms are drawn to the “agile office” when they move locations or redesign, finding the balance between flexible space, sound level management and a sense of routine can be a challenge. Join a panel of experts for a free discussion of the benefits and detriments to breaking out of the office space box.
Hosted by Business editor Carol Coultas.
