There is an intrinsic belief that more choice is better for everyone, whether it be types of coffee, style of shoe, or different spaces to work in an office environment.
But the opposite is true. Too much choice creates confusion.
This white paper argues that organisations need to look at the type of people they employ before they design an office, and harmonise the office to the workforce rather than the other way round. It will argue that people must be trained to use space and not simply left to get on with it. It will call for a reduction in choice in the office environment to reduce the risk of paralysis by confusion.
