This editorial article is a part of's Office Trends Month of our editorial calendar.

As 2019 approaches its close, we at are turning to one of our very favorite topics, something that affects nearly every working professional in each of our four markets: office trends.

Indeed, for the last month of our editorial calendar, we’re devoting extra reporting to how and where we work together, including the physical offices, the cultural dynamics and best practices for motivating collaboration, impact and growth.

Think: What do office environments of today look like and how do the people in them operate more effectively? What are the subcultures that define our company cultures? What’s the best way to navigate a challenging (yet so hip!) open office layout? And what does the downfall of WeWork mean for the coworking industry as a whole?

A few relevant stories we’ve published in recent months:

We’ll also be showing off innovative offices in a special sponsored content package that will be positioned within December’s theme. It’s a great option for companies, coworking facilities and any organization with sweet digs that wants to showcase its space to the local community. From last year, for instance, check out our pieces on Philly’s Kismet Cowork and Baltimore’s Asymmetrick.
