Studies done by leading industry and academic researchers find that employers in the US lose $1.8 trillion a year in productivity as workers can't achieve their maximum productivity in an office environment. Among the top reasons, causing the problem are:
- stress during commutes, longer than 20min;
- distractions in the office space;
- lack of flexibility in the office space for people with special needs;
- difficult work-life balance, caused by the fixed working environment.
