Open Office Plans

Open Office Plans Affect Workplace Communication

Recently, Harvard Business School Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior, Ethan Bernstein conducted a before-and-after study that may reinforce the already strong case against open office plans. Bernstein’s research uses observational evidence rather than self-reported data to show that communal workspaces don’t necessarily provide a collaborative environment. Lisa MacLellan, from Quartz at Work, summarized the study results. Bernstein centered his research on a renovation at an unnamed Fortune 500 company that was engaged in a “so-called war on walls.” Employees participating in the study wore people analytics badges that anonymously tracked, but didn’t record, conversations.
