4.06 A Another Study Decrying the Open Office: So Many Studies, So Little Understanding (no CEU)
Monday, April 8, 2019 2:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Venue: Atlanta Marriott Marquis
Room: International Salon 9-10
There is a consistent barrage of reports and papers establishing the end of the open workplace. This presentation will examine the studies and review why and where they are misleading, why we need better and more universally adopted definitions of what we define as open or closed office environments and examine what we should measure to demonstrate success. The presentation will lay out a manifesto for creating a new paradigm around performance in work, the workplace and the enterprise.
