Turns out, finding the privacy you need at work doesn’t necessarily require closing a door. A new Steelcase study proves that when an open plan office is designed with pockets of visual privacy, it really is possible to focus and get things done. But don’t close your eyes to this additional finding: When it’s time to get creative, being in an open space with open views can help.Finding Focus
The demand for casual, shared environments at work is at an all-time high. At the same time, organizations are more challenged than ever to use every bit of their real estate in meaningful ways. It’s often hard to know for sure what employees really need or want, and so often spaces are sitting empty. New research from Steelcase points the way with guidelines for creating casual work settings that are purposeful, productive and appealing— sure-to-be-used places for getting real work done.Office Remix

Planning for Performance
Today so much of our work happens away from the primary workstation. The casual atmosphere draws us in, but often these spaces do not support our work.
The Science of Collaboration
Neuroscience tells us our brains and bodies are linked, and our ability to learn and solve problems can be influenced by how we move. But a recent Steelcase global study confirms that, although people typically now spend most their time at work collaborating, they’re doing it in spaces that force them to be passive and sedentary versus actively engaged. Today’s fiercely competitive business environment demands a new, active type of collaboration plus dramatically different environments to support it.
