Peter Drucker, 1995 book Managing in a Time of Great Change,

HIRING AND RETAINING THE KNOWLEDGE WORKER
In order to hire and retain knowledge workers, employers may offer higher salaries, attractive work environments, and continuing educational opportunities.

Employers take actions designed to attract and retain knowledge workers by creating a free-agent community, respecting knowledge workers as new bosses, and providing growth opportunities. 

IMPROVING KNOWLEDGE WORKER PRODUCTIVITY
Knowledge worker productivity influences success in today's competitive work economy, and businesses are focusing on increasing this productivity.

THE WORKPLACE
Work-place arrangements range from traditional physical office space occupied by employees between the hours of 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. each workday to virtual office space which can exist just about anywhere.
Knowledge workers who work exclusively with ideas and information may operate in a non-traditional workplace situated anywhere that employees have access to needed computer and communication equipment.
