The latest studies indicate that an investment in a better indoor environment is a profitable one, even with very minor productivity changes. In addition to the indoor environment, the functionality of the workspace significantly affects the productivity of employees. Often a compromise must be made among the needs of the employee, team, and organization when arranging workspaces. Organizational changes in most companies are continuous and require flexible changes in work methods and workspaces. Layout changes in workplaces are a rule, not an exception. Due to management reorganization, changes in business models, and technological innovations, companies may already change their workplace interior layout once a year. Churn cost is often one of the highest operating costs in modern offices being 330 to 2000 (sic) per moved person a year.
