If you are heading back to the office where would you sit?
Window desks and more intimate, grouped desk layouts got a big thumbs-up. But sitting in a row with your back to lots of people was most unsettling.
Staff with window desks felt more productive and focused than those sitting beside walls. Staff facing the room but with relatively few desks in their line of sight rated themselves more focused and productive, and their teams as better bonded. In comparison, staff facing the room but with lots of desks in front of them rated their work #environment less favourably.
The worst rating was by staff whose desks faced away from the main area of the room with many colleagues sitting behind them ✏️
