(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Many of us spend a large chunk of our lives at work, but is your on-the-clock environment affecting how you feel around the clock?

Experts say yes.

In fact open office plans, even cubicles, may be the worst offenders when it comes to harming employee wellness. And that noisy workplace may be killing your concentration and productivity.         

Health officials say those who work in open office plans could see higher stress levels and those in cubicles may be more susceptible to getting sick.

A 2011 Danish study found the number of sick days directly correlated with number of people in one space.

Research also links sitting at a desk all day with a higher risk of diabetes and cardiovascular events.
