If you are heading back to the office where would you sit?

If you are heading back to the #office and get a chance to pick where you sit, choose wisely, say researchers who have been studying the science behind desk location and #productivity.

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.

The worst rating was by staff whose desks faced away from the main area of the room with many colleagues sitting behind them ✏️
