In the old days, enterprises were characterised by rows of people at cubicles and desks, tapping away on typewriters, then keyboards, and then laptops. But the number of desk-bound workers in offices is steadily declining. According to research firm, Strategy Analytics, the number of deskless workers is rising from 1.32 billion in 2014 (37% of workforce) to 1.75 billion in 2020 (42% of the workforce). There will also be an increase in workforce flexibility. According to Global Workplace Analytics, more than 80% of the workforce would like to spend at least part of their time working flexibly, and among Fortune 1000 companies, workers already spend around 50% of their time away from their desks.
