Big Shifts: Changing Workforce Perceptions of Office Acoustics

“The office design used in green buildings is often an open plan employing activity based
work settings from which end users may select the best type of space for the tasks to be
conducted. With employees’ biggest concerns about an open office environment being
distraction and a lack of privacy, the acoustics are often needlessly blamed. Diane
Stegmeier addressed the workforce perceptions that must be shifted in order for an
organization to maximize its investment in the appropriate office acoustic solution.”
