Atlanta businesses, both large and small, are deconstructing the traditional workplace. Sure, entrepreneurs have always worked on the go, operating off of kitchen tables. But now even Fortune 500 companies are revolutionizing the standard nine-to-five. And we don’t mean just adding foosball tables and standing desks. Major corporations are getting rid of private offices altogether, providing shared work spaces and supportive amenities like child care and meditation rooms. Remember when employees weren’t supposed to admit they even had personal lives? Atlantans are resetting the work-life balance. Here’s a look at new ways to get the job done.
