When many of us think about the traditional office layout, cubicles tend to come to mind. Cubicles are where many of the office employees spend their days working on their projects. It was once thought that cubicles provided enough privacy to encourage high levels of productivity. However, after recent studies have shown that collaboration is better for the office space, many offices are making a move away from cubicles.
Instead of forcing individuals to work alone in their own space, more offices are implementing an open office layout, which gives employees easy access to each other. While some of the open layouts include individual desks, other layouts are implementing larger desks to share. The ability to speak with each other freely without a wall blocking your view can help promote creativity and collaboration on a number of different projects. This open line of communication is also known to help boost overall office moral as well as boost productivity.
If you wish to move away from cubicles within your office space, consider tearing down your walls and implementing an open layout. Create a communal space for staff meetings while also providing areas for staff to go if they are wishing for some extra privacy. Creating a balance will help create the ideal office atmosphere for your business.
