OKC Companies Offer Employees New Ways To WorkPublished: Friday, July 14, 2017 5:00 pm By: Amanda Taylor Source: News 9
OKLAHOMA CITY - Technology in the workplace has allowed people the flexibility of working virtually anywhere. We found several new ways people are on the job, sometimes while being out of the office.
"We live in an era where people want more than just a paycheck so we want a space that's conducive to creativity," said Staplegun CEO Philip Baker.
For Baker, that means taking down the walls, literally, to give his employees an open workspace.
"If I'm having a challenge or I need a quick brainstorm, I can literally go 'hey, Kayla, Emma, Chris, I need you guys right now' and we all literally campfire real quick and kind of discuss things," said Jason Redman, Account Coordinator at Staplegun.
The walls that do stand serve as brainstorming areas where ideas are shared and scribbled on the walls.
"When we bring our partners in, we want them to feel the creative vibe, we want them to feel the talent that's here and the energy that went into what we make for them," Baker said.
