Technology has grown multiple folds for people to cope up with. It is becoming very difficult to learn all the new technology and then produce results. This is where collaboration to play.

In an open-plan work environment, there are no distinct rooms or fully enclosed spaces. Instead, workstations are positioned together -- sometimes seperated by short screens or panels -- within one exposed floor plan. The openness may improve communication and collaboration among your workers, but it also may reduce concentration and productivity.

Staff Advantages:

A lack of walls or other physical barriers in open - plan office spaces makes it easier for employees to interact with each other on a regugular basis.

The constant intermingling not only generates a sense of camaraderie among personnel, it also enhances the flow of information and teamwork. Colleagues can turn to each other for advice or assistance without having to knock on doors or schedule a formal meeting.

Interactions in an open-plan office space generally aremore frequent and informal in closed environments where everyone has a seperate office space.

If the layout of the office needs to be changed, it can be done quickly and with minimal effort. If a closed plan office layout needs to be changed, serious issues can arise the way they never will with open office plans.

Buissness advantages:

The incereasef collaboration resulting from an open - plan work space can lead to buissness innovation and advancement.

At the same time, an open - plan layout can benefit the buissness economically by reducing costs tied to construction, utilities and office equipment. For example, fewer walls mean less time and materials required to create the office space.

Having a single work space also may reduce heating/cooling and electricity expenses, improved flow of air and light. Buissness can save on equipment investment as well, since communal spaces promote shared use of resources, such as printers, copiers and staplers. An open - plan space also provides greater flexibility to accommodate evolving personnel needs.
