In fact, 66 percent of respondents said their workplaces should be physically changed “to create more personal space,” the survey found.

The survey also found that 49 percent said they think open offices aren’t “conducive to their health and wellness” and 50 percent said they want their in-person meetings to be limited, according to the results of the survey.

About 60 percent of employees even said they plan to limit contact with people at their workplaces once they go back into the office.
