The advantages of open-space offices. Here’s how it influences the evolution of your business

The year 2023 brings new challenges for your company because you have reached the point where you have to look for a new location, which will meet all the needs of the business you own. The real estate market is extremely competitive, but before choosing, you must perform a correct analysis of the facilities and benefits that the building you will rent must provide to your employees and your business.

The first decision you will have to make will be related to the way to accommodate the offices. In short, do you want to set up individual offices or do you prefer to choose spaces where open-space offices can be organized?

What do open space offices mean?

Offices in an open space are not separated by partition walls. This fact can contribute favorably to the development of the company and can improve the way of communication and work, both at the manager-employee level and within the teams.

Here are some of the advantages of open-space offices:

  • encourages interaction between employees – in this way, better and more efficient communication is achieved, both between superiors and subordinates, as well as between members of the same team. Good communication between your company’s employees can increase their productivity and performance by up to 25%. According to a study, 85% of employees and managers claim that poor interaction between teams is the main cause of operational and organizational problems at work;

Consequently, choosing open space offices will increase the likelihood of your employees developing and maintaining effective communication, which will lead to the completion of tasks in a timely manner. Verbal communication is easier and faster when employees are in the same office and are not separated by partitions;

  • gives the impression of hierarchical equality – open space offices have a positive impact not only on the level of horizontal communication but also on the level of vertical communication, between employees and managers or direct superiors. The fact that they are in the same office as their superiors eliminates hierarchical barriers and gives confidence to subordinates to talk openly with managers and direct superiors. Thus, when they encounter a problem or need help, employees will listen to their instincts and come to discuss the issues that are troubling them, with their manager or direct superior;
  • contribute to cost efficiency – open space offices favor the optimal use of available space. This type of arrangement offers a high level of flexibility and multiple design possibilities. Such a detail represents an advantage for entrepreneurs to use their financial resources efficiently. In this way, you will be able to provide an environment conducive to employees, in which to carry out their activities, with minimal consumption of resources.
