Who Wants to Work Outside?
Outdoor retailer L.L.Bean has partnered with coworking provider, Industrious, to launch an initiative to bring more outdoor time into the workday with the introduction of "Be an Outsider at Work." The initiative will launch in New York City's Madison Square Park on June 21st with an outdoor coworking space, complete with individual workspaces, collaborative conference areas, cycling desks and outdoor teambuilding activities – giving new meaning to being "Out of Office."
The space will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., complete with wifi, power and collaborative workspaces, designed by Industrious. Everyone is invited to reserve a free workspace at www.BeAnOutsiderAtWork.com or stop by the park.
L.L.Bean's Outdoor Discovery Program experts will also be on-site to facilitate a short team-building exercise, which will involve a group problem-solving activity designed to highlight teamwork, communication, and leadership skills.
After New York City, the activation will travel to Boston, MA July 10-12, Philadelphia, PA July 17-19, and Madison, WI in July 24-26.
