​Bringing Focus Back to the Open Office - Research Report

Companies love the open office because it saves money, but people struggle to stay focused. Here’s how to keep everyone happy.

Seventy percent of US office workers now work in open-plan offices. While the press loves to disparage the open office, a massive global study shows that nine out of ten of the highest performing workplaces are either fully or extensively open plan. That may be because a thoughtfully designed open plan can create conditions that encourage engagement. People are more likely to be engaged at work if they can move around, have privacy when they need it, and have access to spaces that let them connect with coworkers.
