Workers in the English capital have confessed that the one thing they can do without in their offices is fellow employees.According to the “London Office Workers’ Survey 2015”, when asked the question: “What is the one thing you can’t live without in the office?” only four per cent said their friends and fellow colleagues. The survey, carried out by Swift Office Cleaning Services, suggested that companies moving towards open plan working instead of the traditional segmented offices are getting it wrong. Workers, it seems, would prefer the return of the individual office format. Indeed, open-plan working was described as being too noisy and cluttered for most workers, with a fifth stating that office space would be one thing they would change if they had the opportunity – be it having their own office or to have smaller office areas rather than the large open plan layout. A tenth said they would change the people they work with including “the boss”. Workers wanted better teamwork, cleaner and more tidy colleagues and to “get rid” of the lazy workers.
