Worker Type Indicator
Camper: Campers are knowledge workers who prefer working primarily in a private office at the company office. Campers place a premium on privacy and nesting, and conduct their best work when working alone.
Explorer: Explorers are knowledge workers who like to work ‘at the office,’ but enjoy moving around and working at different workstations (including open-plan workstations) throughout the week/month. Explorers are more comfortable working in busy, social environments than are campers.
Nomad: Nomads are knowledge workers who greatly value maximum choice and mobility in how/where they conduct their work. Nomads appreciate the option of working either at the office, at a coffee shop, at home, or at a coworking space, etc.
Homebody: Homebodies are independent knowledge workers who prefer to create a ‘home office’ where they perform their most effective work. Homebodies use digital tools to collaborate and remain socially connected with colleagues.
Coworker: Coworkers are adventurous knowledge workers who prefer to work ‘off campus’ in coworking spaces (such as WeWork). Coworkers appreciate the stimulation of working around people from different industries and companies, and can thrive in a highly social environment.
