Introverts constitute between a third and a half of any workforce and can be some of the most creative thinkers in a company or organisation. However, they often struggle in many workplaces today that were created with a bias toward extroverted behaviours and extensive open-plan facilities. ?Every organisation has introverts and a lot of them. This large segment of the workforce is going through the day, just trying to get by in an office environment not designed to support their needs??, says Zoe Humphries, Senior Workplace Consultant for Steelcase in the UK. ?We looked more closely at introverts and their needs in the workplace in collaboration with Susan Cain, author of the international bestseller Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can??t Stop Talking and introduced the Quiet Spaces collection of workspaces to the American market expressly designed to bring out the best in introverts at work.??
