Open Plan Office Design Condemned by Jeremy Paxman
The Workspace Consultants

"If I were king for a day, I would ban open-plan offices" Says Jeremy Paxman

In an article in the Guardian Jeremy Paxman argues that; "Such offices tell us what our bosses think of us – that we are employed to fulfil a mechanical task and we are interchangeable"

The Workspace Consultants agree with some of his views but believe open plan offices can be designed to create working environments which motivate employees to produce their best work for your organisation.
