How Your Miserable Open Office Might Change This Year – Fast Company

This may be your year.


Open concept office floor plans have characterized modern offices for the past several years. But dissatisfaction with these wide open spaces, along with advances in technology that have brought about changes in how and where we can work and concerns about employee health, has caused many forward-looking companies to head back to the drawing board to make their office design more reflective of modern working styles.


Stegmeier Consulting’s Insight…

So you have modernized your office design complete with open layouts, casual working spaces, and new strategies that encourage collaboration and mobility.  Great!  The problem?  The new approach just isn’t catching on in the office, and the investment your company has made in this change doesn’t look poised to yield a promising return.

If this situation has your organization perplexed, you’re not alone. There are several factors (or, Critical Influences as we here at Stegmeier Consulting Group refer to them) that our research shows could have caused this disconnect between the intended results of the workplace change and the actual results.  Rest assured, however, that there are a number of things that can still be done to get your workplace initiative back on track.

Whether it is through training, surveys, focus groups, or other forms of employee engagement, Stegmeier can help your organization pinpoint and overcome whatever hurdles may be in the way.  Don’t settle for the status quo and assume your endeavor is a lost cause.  Contact us to learn more about the 15 Critical Influences that contribute to the success of any workplace initiative, and to learn more about how SCG can assist in making your office a destination that employees can’t wait to visit.
