This report also discovered that the average number of collaboration spaces per floor is quickly growing – from 10% to 25% in the past couple of years. As business leaders and CRE executives make changes to their existing layouts and office plans, they must ensure that spaces are being used efficiently while also providing employees with the best ways to get work done.
