As part of a new flexible working drive, international mining firm Rio Tinto has asked its employees to clear their desks and swap their computers for laptops.
Personnel Today reports that around 550 workers at the firm's head office in London empty their desks of clutter on a daily basis to help maintain a mobile working initiative.
At the end of the day, only pictures are left hung on the walls with magnets.
Neil Usher, general manager of group property at Rio Tinto, said: "It means employees from around the world can sit down in the London office and still feel at home, and also that it's easy to move entire departments around the building without much hassle."
Another company which may be making use of flexible working methods is KPMG, as many of its staff have expressed an interest in working a four-day week to help save jobs.
