One of the main success factors modern companies and rising startups are focusing on is office design. Studies, including this one, have found that office design can make or break a business performance.

But an ideal workplace -that guarantees success- is relative.

Yet, many companies have failed to offer the best work environment to their employees. According to the infographic below, featured on Cool Infographics and made by Quill, research shows that three out of four U.S. employees do not work in the most favorable settings. 

In order to solve that, the infographic suggests that, first, the employee needs to identify their workplace personality type.

The following steps a company needs to do would be to identify the ideal workplace for its employees and then improve their workplace accordingly.
