It’s been a few years since the first crop of Millennials joined the workforce. More outspoken than previous generations, Millennials have forever changed how and where we work with new ideas about work/life balance that have led to modern mainstays such as the office dog, stadium seating and meditation spaces.

At MKDA Emma leads clients meetings with brokers, developers and tenants to develop high-end corporate designs at MKDA.

We asked Emma about some of the workplace challenges currently faced by MKDA clients and what she saw at NeoCon. Read more here.
