Offices at Work: Uncommon Workspace Strategies that Add Value and Improve Performance / Edition 1

Without advocating a particular solution, Becker (design and environmental analysis, Cornell) offers guidance to managers trying to design an efficient and cost-effective workplace. He explains why some designs succeed and others fail, despite their popularity, and provides a wide range of sample designs. He contrasts the benefits of open and closed office places and also offers advice for helping employees adjust to a new workplace environment. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
