Technical Briefing Notes

Occasionally in the course of our research and our work as journalists and futurists we produce short technical papers on a variety of different topics relating to the changing nature of work, the workplace, the workforce, the working environment, facilities, and corporate real estate. Whenever possible we post these technical notes in the open section of our Abstracts and Archives as part of our effort to strengthen the profession.

Abstracts and Archives

Our online library is a rich source of materials (research reports, industry studies, articles, white papers, conference presentations) for facilities and workplace professionals.

The Archives are currently under development; check back frequently to learn more about our plans.

Portions of the Archives are restricted to GRID Gold, Silver, and Bronze Subscribers.
