Report: U.S. workers hate ‘open’ office spaces

We told them we weren't going to like open offices, they did it anyway, and now they're upset because no one wants to come in so they're punishing everyone. There's management for you.

Despite a recent trend of employers tinkering with barrier-free offices, community benches and desk clumps, the science is not sanguine about open workspace productivity. Some have even called such layouts a “disaster.”

What is it workers want, then? Eighty-four percent of Bospar’s respondents said working from home would be ideal. Nearly 60 percent cited “not having to commute” as a top reason for wanting to work remotely, and 41 percent indicated that they’d be more productive working from home.

Workplace environment appears to be a hill that many employees are willing to die on—or at least take a pay cut over. According to the survey, “Eighteen percent would pursue a new job to have a workspace they like better, and 9 percent would petition to work part-time in an environment they do like.”

Study after study shows that open space office plans don't work. They inhibit collaboration and create a toxic atmosphere (not to mention having people cough and sneeze in your face all day because WFH has been removed). Charlie doesn't care. You could die at your desk and he'd have you written up for poor performance.

Management by fear is usually an attempt to compensate for lack of good ideas.

It was a waste of money. Charlie can now just sit and drink in the misery of his underlings.
