Cisco Connected Workplace Aspires toward a Green Office Environment

After recognizing that traditionally assigned office space is vacant about 65 percent of the time while meeting rooms were often in short supply, Cisco IT and Cisco Workplace Resources developed the Connected Workplace. This new concept virtually eliminates dedicated workspaces and increases shared spaces available to everybody, adapting to the increasingly mobile and collaborative work styles of Cisco employees and contractors. To quantify the environmental sustainability of the Connected Workplace compared to traditional office environments, Cisco commissioned a study. This seven-page PDF details the results of that study, which documented benefits including:

  • Reduced consumption of materials and equipment
  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Increased space utilization
  • Reduced electronic and office waste
