Turn your cubicle into a gingerbread house
Love them or hate them, cubicles have played a big role in the life of the white-collar American for 50+ years, with no signs of slowing. In the beginning, cubicles were invented to 1) maximize floor space and, 2) give employees their own little slice of office to call their own.
Basically, the cubicle was an invention born from our innate desire to control our workspace. Lecturer at Leeds University Business School and workspace design specialist, Dr. Matthew Davis points out that, “We have a really innate instinct about space and making things our own.”
Cubicles have been the basis of inter-office debates for years now. Some say they waste space and have the potential to stifle creativity, and prefer an open workplace environment. However, there’s a lot of research out there showing that open office plans can actually be disruptive to individuals’ focus, morale and health, for introverts especially. So how do you decide on the perfect office layout for your company’s needs?
The key to choosing the right type of workspace design, elements and layout depend on a number of factors, but the most important one you’ll want to pay attention to is balance. Keeping the wants and needs of your employees in mind will help you strike that perfect balance between privacy and proficiency.
The modern workspace has undergone some big changes over the past few years thanks to the rise of coworking spaces, desk sharing and virtual offices. But no matter how far we stray from the traditional office layout, the cubicle remains, though it too has undergone some serious evolution.
If you’re wondering what type of cubicle to consider for your office, or if you want to learn a little more about the most common piece of modern office furniture, keep on reading!
So you’re in the market for office cubicles. Before you run out and buy just any old set, do a little research. Office furniture says a lot about a company.
No, we’re not talking about research on which fabric for the conference room chairs best complements the CEO’s favorite tie or what type of decorative fern can survive the longest without being watered.
When it comes to purchasing cubicles, size does matter. Wall size, that is.
Here’s the low-down (or the high-up) on the three types of cube heights and what they say about your organization.
Most of us slog away at our keyboards, hidden away in generic burlap office cubicles, with no idea of any other work environment. The folks at Pixar are here to ruin that for you, by showing you what their employees think is normal office life. How cool is their daily grind? Picture rooms full of cereal, with cartoon characters at every turn, and ping-pong tables fighting foosball tables for the most-fun office furniture award.
As a business grows and the desks are filling up, you may have to think about rearranging your workplace or even moving into a larger office. We want to create a unique environment that provides comfort for all employees. Trends for designing the office space are beginning to change and modernize to create a communal and team environment for coworkers. An aesthetically pleasing design starts with taking a unique approach when choosing commercial office furniture. Here are some tips for creating an impressive workspace.
When you’re working in an office setting, chances are you’re spending a lot of time at a desk or workstation. A typical employee works about 2000 hours per year, usually working on a computer or performing office related tasks that require sitting. These desk jobs can often be detrimental to their health, especially without the right equipment. To maintain an optimal comfort level, there are a number of ergonomic solutions that can be beneficial for your work performance, as well as your health.
Office workers spend 11 months of the year slogging away in an office cubicle, filing TPS reports, and dodging conference calls. It’s no wonder that most look forward to the holidays, the one time of year when employees can let their hair down, eat too much free food, and maybe, if they’re lucky, throw one heck of a party. Here are 10 of the best holiday party ideas the interwebs have to offer.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Halloween out there, and hopefully your office cubicle is following suit. If your office allows it, dressing up your cubicle is the perfect way to add a little spice to the work day and give your coworkers something to talk about.
Holidays are the most fun time to work at an office. There are loads of baked goods in the break room and lots of excuses to cancel meetings in favor of impromptu parties. Also, it’s a great reason to decorate your cubicle. (Sometimes with candy.)
