On Friday, March 18, a group of 27 MBA candidates toured innovative workspaces throughout Cambridge, MA. Led by the Leadership and Organizational Transformation Club, the group toured the Cambridge Innovation Center and Google’s Cambridge Campus with the goal of exploring how non-traditional work spaces can influence and encourage a healthy working environment for employees.
The behind-the-scenes look at Cambridge Innovation Center showed how and why so many startups choose to begin their operations there, in what is arguably the largest collection of startup companies in the world! Google provided insights into the design and thought behind their many amenities and interesting working environments, moving beyond just ‘fun’ into actually productive results. All in all, the group learned quite a bit and now have a deeper understanding of the pros and cons of flexible and unique work spaces.
