Open floor plans may lead to sickness?!

Open floor plans for offices may lead to more time off due to sickness… Swedish researchers just came out with a new study compared data from 2,000 people in seven different office designs, and those who worked in open floor plans took more time off for sickness. Women took more sick time than men in total open layouts, and in open-plan layouts without individual workstations, but with some meeting rooms men had higher rates of ‘sick leave’.
