Feeling unproductive at your cold, isolated cubicle in the leaky corner of the office? You’re probably not the only one. Gensler’s 2008 Workplace Survey found a significant connection between satisfying workplace design and business performance. The ways we work are changing, and environments which encourage collaboration and social learning (along with the traditional “heads-down” approach) tend towards higher productivity. There is room for discussion within the statistics, but I think we’d all agree that a satisfied employee is usually a more productive one.
