Rules for Designing an Engaging Workplace - Harvard Business Review
As today’s companies wake up to the value of workers who are truly engaged in their work — a clear case of trying to encourage certain ways of thinking and behaving – they should probably be paying far more attention to place design. Few things are more instrumental in boosting — or diminishing — levels of employee engagement.

Workspaces That Move People - Harvard Business Review
Few companies measure whether the design of their workspaces helps or hurts performance, but they should. The authors have collected data that capture individuals’ interactions, communications, and location information. They’ve learned that face-to-face interactions are by far the most important activity in an office; creating chance encounters between knowledge workers, both inside and outside the organization, improves performance.

An Open Office Experiment That Actually Worked - Harvard Business Review
Nowadays many people regard open-plan offices with skepticism — remnants of a once-cool work space fad that led to more distraction than innovation. But we at The Bridgespan Group decided to test that conventional wisdom six months ago when we moved 70 employees from offices and cubicles on two floors of a building in Boston’s Back Bay to a dramatically different space fashioned out of the gutted top floor of a tower four blocks away.

Turning your environment into a productivity machine - CFO Insights - Deloitte
Corporate real estate is undergoing a revolution. Companies are tearing down their walls, and the result is that shared spaces like “huddle zones” are crowding out individual workspace – including the corner office, in some cases. Such overhauls tend to yield big cost savings in the form of rent and construction costs. What many companies fail to take into account, however, is that physical space is just one component of today’s workplace. Two other components, namely virtual interactions and management practices, also play critical roles in shaping how people work and how productive they can be.
