A break is perceived as Stress, should also be openly dümay. Harth: "Disgruntled employees and a high level of sickness absence benefits no one." 
  • Example Großraumbüro: Trennwänd create something Privatsphäre. In abge­­areas, so-called &quot separated;Quiet Zones", you can ungestört a call or specially concentrated work. 

Peace in the workplace claim
