CNN explores workplace of tech companies in show

MUMBAI: News broadcaster CNN has announced that this month's edition of its show Global Office sees Kristie Lu Stout reveal the future of the office as we know it, from interior design to working environments. She explores Silicon Valley and beyond and visits the world's biggest tech companies to see how their workspaces score. The show airs on 19 May at 1 pm and 9:30 pm, 20 May at 5 pm and on 24 May at 7 pm.

At the Googleplex -- the headquarters of Google -- the company's chief cultural officer leads Kristie on a tour that goes some way to explaining why the company attracts an amazing 3,000 job applications a day from wannabe Googlers. Just down the road is the greenest office in the US, the headquarters of software giant Adobe. The company's innovative efforts to be more environmentally friendly are not only good for the planet, but great for the bottom line, leaving an important lesson for businesses big and small the world over.

Next stop is Intel. Despite advances in architectural office design, the reality for most office workers is the cubicle farm and Kristie meets Intel's chief anthropologist, Dr Genevieve Bell, who reveals what fate may hold for the much-maligned office cubicle. Venturing north to Seattle and the home of Microsoft brings an exclusive look at the corporation's vision of the future for consumers and its own employees.

The show then turns the mirror on itself as British designer Tara B provides her candid thoughts on how the CNN London office could be revitalised.
