Policies for sharing workspaces in activity-based flex offices
Paper in proceedings, 2017

Policies for maintaining non-territoriality (desk-sharing and clean desk policies) and for
maintaining zones with different sound levels vary between activity-based flex offices. Five
policies were identified as crucial for making the activity-based office concept work. In cases
without explicitly expressed policies employees reported uncertainties and interpretations of
how to act in the office.
