When we saw the cool, minimalist design and freedom of the open office, we dreamed of spontaneous collaboration, deeper connections with co-workers, and enhanced performance. The reality? Too often the open office is a sea of distractions. Loud talkers. Barking dogs. Mike from Marketing who won’t shut up. If you’re working in an open-plan office, these perils are just the beginning.
