The debate of open offices vs. closed ones has been a hot topic for years. And even though a definitive conclusion in favor of either has never been reached, open offices have somehow become the norm.
These days, you can find open offices everywhere, regardless of company size or industry. But does this mean they’re good for us?
We’re going to consider many workplace factors and evaluate if each is a Pro or Con in the case of open offices. Feel free to skip to the ones that interest you the most.
