Managing Noise: In the Open Office
The move to open-plan offices has ushered in a new era of improved collaboration and communication as well as huge cost-savings through reduced real estate overhead. But while businesses applaud the move, employees struggle with a new workplace reality that came as a result: noise. It begins as collaboration begins, with people converging and openly exchanging information and ideas. And it’s intensified through the environment itself — via hard and reflective surfaces that amplify sound. But it’s not about open office noise so much as it’s about how it distracts your teams and affects workplace experience and productivity.
