Which Worker Style are You?

Which Worker Style are You?

We spend a lot of time observing office workers and one of the things we've noticed is that there are three major worker styles. Each worker style—mobile, resident, or flex (a mix of mobile and resident)—has its own considerations, which affect workplace and tools. At Herman Miller, we have a good mix of worker styles; click on a style to learn more about it, including what tools are most helpful, according to someone who works that way.

Resident:
The resident works at a desk more than six hours a day for four to five days each week.
Real life example

Mobile worker:
Mobile workers are typically on the go. They work in one location just one to three days each week for just a few hours a day.
Real life example

Flex:
A flex worker is a hybrid.  Like a resident, the flex worker works at an assigned office four or five days per week, but only for three to five hours each day.
Real life example
