Today we opened the first ever public ‘tree-office’ in Pimlico Gardens in London.  With 14% of British workers claiming that their favourite place to work would be the beach, and a further 10% who’d love to work from their park or garden, the ‘tree-office’ demonstrates that it is possible to work from anywhere.

This was part of our Mobile Out Of Office (MOOF) initiative in Microsoft which is highlighting the importance of mobile and flexible working.  From our research 73% of people consider the ability to work flexibly a deciding factor when choosing a new job; while 52% of workers believe they would enjoy a less stressful working life as a benefit of working remotely.
