Open Layout Offices

I keep looking for even a single study showing that open plan office layouts are in any way a good idea, and I keep coming up empty. Study after study show that open layout offices are a bad idea. They’re terrible for the productivity, morale, and health of the employees. Some studies show they actually diminish the collaboration their proponents say they foster.

Here, in no particular order, is an evolving collection of resources showing how open plan office layouts are hurting your company.
