The U.S. workplace is undergoing one of its largest transformations in the past 40 years. In 2020, Millennials will make up 50% of the workpace. Baby Boomers, just 25%. A recent phenomenon emerged from this convergence is the huddle room, a small pace that facilitates quick, casual, often unplanned meetings.

Enterprises that find ways to satisfy these generations' similarities, while also bridging their differences, will benefit from improved recruiting and retention of these workers.
