A new study has found that workers are less satisfied with open plan offices than closed off ones.
The same study, published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology, also explained that open plan offices do not boost teamwork or interaction among colleagues.
Among the verbose spreading around the office, one gripe that every employee had about their working environment was the temperature. The study also found that half of the workers that work in an open plan environment were not satisfied with the lack of sound privacy.
This study was taken by the University of Sydney and was taken on the basis of over 40,000 surveys received on behalf of employers from the US, Finland, Canada and Australia.
