Work Together: Behind the Scenes of “We Are Workrite”

Worktogether Behind the Scenes of "We Are Workrite" We recently released the new “We Are Workrite” video, diving into who we are and the amazing people that work here. Now we’re taking you behind the scenes of the video to show how it was made and some of the (hilarious!) scenes that didn’t make the final cut.   How we made it We created the “We Are Workrite” video entirely in-house, gathering together a band of dedicated people who believed in the dream of an awesome company video.

Worksimple Sit Stand Desk or Standing Desk Converter? Choosing the Right Ergonomic Solution Taking the leap from a standard, fixed-height desk to a workstation that allows you to sit and stand can be daunting. There are so many options to choose from.

Work Smart: How Smart Workers are Leveraging the Power of Prioritization

Worksmart How Smart Workers are Leveraging the Power of Prioritization The phrase “work smarter, not harder” is everywhere, but for a good reason. We spend so much of our time working, but how much are we actually getting done? Working smart means being productive not just busy. If at the end of the day, all you’ve done is clean out your email (good for you, by the way!), was that really a productive use of your time?   Be Productive, not Busy Smart workers and savvy employers are beginning to understand that being busy and being productive are very different.

Work Together: Creating Collaborative Spaces That Work

Worktogether Creating Collaborative Spaces That Work As the modern office continues to change, interior designers and office furniture manufacturers must adapt to fit the needs of today’s employees and businesses. While classic office design focused (a bit too much) on spaces to do individual, heads down work, offices of the future are far more flexible. People want options, movement, and creative environments in which to work. They don’t want to be stuck in a boring cubicle or siloed off from their colleagues in their own little corner of a huge office building. The modern office should encourage people to work together, communicate (in person!), and move around with ease. There are a variety of ways to creates collaborative spaces in the modern office, but here are a few of our favorites:     Benching systems, for solo work and collaboration The open office [...]
