Millennials will soon make up the majority of the American labor force. Born between 1977 and 1994, millennials are more likely to want more time for themselves than what is traditionally observed. With work schedules growing more flexible these days, even Baby Boomers are looking for the right home/work balance.

Multiple studies have shown that the freedom to choose where, when, and how to work is something millenials value very much. Adopting a flexible arrangement may not be create a better controlled work environment, but it can help in outperforming the competition.

In an article for the Harvard Business Review, Nathaniel Kloc, CEO of New York-based recruiting company ReWork, cites several findings in favor of giving employees greater work freedom.

• Companies that officially allow employees to work remotely at least three times per month were more likely to report revenue growth of 10% or more within the last year, compared to firms without such policies.

• An LRN study released at the World Economic Forum in Davos found in a deep study that companies in which employees displayed “high levels of freedom” in their relationships were 10-20 times more likely to outperform companies with low freedom scores.

Karl Moore, professor at McGill University's Desautels Faculty of Management, says millennials want to work to serve a purpose more than just to make money. They seek to be a part of something big, not just in their jobs but also in their lives. Perhaps, the words of singer Dolly Parton express these sentiments best: "Don't get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life."

Today, practically any room can be turned into an office with well-made modern home office furniture. You can transform a part of the house into an office, complete with drawers, desks, office chairs, and even an executive ball clicker. Pharaoh Manufacturing's Siamun line of desks, seats, and cabinets can make any room look like it belongs to a CEO.

Combining the beauty of wood and the futuristic look of chrome, the Siamun desks resonate with the tech-savvy millennial generation as it blends traditional materials with modern finishes. Its laminated top gives the wooden surface protection from the effects of days of toiling over the computer and tons of paperwork. You can even customize the look and feel of the furniture for better inspiration.

Just as today's labor force has more options on how to manage their time, they can also put their personal stamp on their work areas through excellent custom home office furniture. Working from the comforts of home on your very own office furniture may just be the surefire formula for happiness and productivity on the job.
