The first thing you are introduced to when you start work at a new office is probably your desk, where you expect to spend the next few years of your life slogging away.
To break away from this traditional paradigm of the workplace, Microsoft recently unveiled a new “open office” setup at its Singapore and Asia-Pacific offices here, which is significantly different from what most people are used to.
Perhaps most disconcertingly, no one in the entire six levels of Microsoft offices here has a permanently assigned desk. Instead, employees are given a personal locker where they keep all their personal stuff, and will have to pick a new desk every day they come to work.
