This Is The Ideal Office, According To Science And Design (INFOGRAPHIC).

 

Just as designers, facility managers, building owners push for very open offices and typical 5 x 6 workspaces, comes yet more evidence that these designs negatively impact human performance.

OPC Inc has been discussing the neurophysiological and physiological evidence for not using open offices in particular those with low or no visual and noise barriers in place.

Here is yet more evidence about combining science – called ergonomics – with design.  Learn more why these office designs are not the best way to enhance human concentration, work output and quality in our Blog optimalperformanceblog.com

Employers make the mistake of only looking at saved real estate costs by using open office designs. Never do the folks who review real estate costs also review rates of sickness, lost time illness and “stress” related statistics and costs; lower quality of work, slowed work rates, human error data.  Unless and until employers look at ALL of the data they will continue to bias their conclusions that these designs save money for the corporation.

  1. First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!

    1. Hi Nigel – when I am working out ideas come to mind – I do a great deal of research ahead of time, then go for a run or a game and start to write at that point mentally – by the time I sit down the Blogs start to get written pretty quickly – then I edit after. Strong link between Physical activity of any kind such as walking, biking, running etc and enhanced brain function. Give it a trial. Thanks for following JESleeth OPC
