"The old way of managing and looking at work isn't going to work anymore. We want to revolutionize the way work gets done." Cali Ressler, Best Buy Human Resources
From: Business Week
"They (Best Buy) launched a new pilot called Cube-Free. Ressler and Thompson believe offices encourage the wrong kinds of habits, keeping people wrapped up in a paper, prewireless mentality as opposed to pushing employees to use technology in the efficiency enhancing way it was intended. Offices also waste space and time in a age when workers are becoming more and more place-neutral. 'This also sets up Best Buy to be able to completely operate if disaster hits.'"
Here are the results from a recent Working Wounded Blog/ABCNEWS.com online ballot:
Which best describes you at work?
I bleed my company's colors, 11.3 percent
I'm cynical as hell about my company, 23.2
I take a balanced view, 65.3 percent
