SubjectOpen-plan offices [cubicles]
AbstractFor many organizations, the physical office space is considered simply a place to 'house' employees, and therefore a cost that should be minimized. However, inappropriate office design choices can compromise workers' comfort, making it hard for them to work effectively, while also increasing the potential for staff turnover. As such, an ill-chosen design could cost organizations more in the end.
