By Travis Gonzalez, Writer at BIZNOW
Open office has become a buzzword. Companies use the promise of dense, collaborative atmospheres and dynamic workplace culture as a means to attract top talent. But the rush to build these spaces, coupled with rising rents and low vacancies in major markets, has led to missteps in office wellness. This has caused some users to push back against the development of open office.
Design firm DLR Group plans to change the conversation. The company has taken a holistic approach to designing open-office workplaces. The company uses data and a three-pronged strategy to prove that an emphasis on office wellness can have significant financial benefits. “We believe that when the open office is designed correctly it creates the best culture for innovation, collaboration and self-worth,” DLR Group principal Jeremy Reding said.
