One of the ways to make employees happy in the office is to optimize office space.

Cubicles often provide privacy, but in a false sense. Though it may seem private and secluded, workers tend to feel isolated or alienated after a while. This also segregates the rest of the team from each other, which means less face-to-face communication and bonding, resulting in a lack of team spirit and work. The average US employee spends over 1,700 hours at work annually, which means over ten waking hours a day are spent at the office.

One of the ways the infographic recommends to optimize office space is to paint it vibrantly with colors that employers want to reflect their desired identity and spirit. Another way is to use space efficiently such as a fair balance between open and closed working areas.
