A new Robert Half survey finds that 56% of human resources managers say that in recent years their companies have "gone open." And while 65% of workers say that having that open floor plan is good for employee collaboration, many think other office set ups work just as well. For example 69% of people say a combo of open and private spaces can still lead to employees working together while 68% say the same for semi-private cubicles, and 60% agree for private offices.
The survey finds that overall, those workers who are in offices with open floor plans and semi-private cubicles report the lowest productivity levels. Those in private offices note having the highest productivity levels. And that’s not all, 31% of those in semi-private cubicles and 25% of those working in a open plan environment say they feel stressed because of their workspace, while 59% of those in private offices say they are relaxed in their space.
