Providing your employees with decent work space is important for their happiness as well as your company's overall production levels. There are many reasons to consider using cubicles in your office floor design. The following are just a few of the most notable.
The opportunity to take advantage of enhanced privacy is an excellent reason to install cubicles in your office for employees to utilize. They'll be able to talk on the phone with clients and family members without having to worry about colleagues listening in.
They should more easily be able to tune disrupting noises and conversations out while they're completing important tasks, and they'll be able to store personal items in their work area safely and securely.
Having privacy at work will help make your employees feel valued and important, which in turn is sure to increase productivity levels and minimize turnover as time goes on. Cubicles can be designed with high walls and doors to act as an office for complete privacy or designed with one open wall to create semi-private spaces. Utilize a mixture of the two designs to accommodate management and team members.
Employees need to be comfortable at work to perform at their best, but if they're too comfortable, they may end up costing you more money than they make you. Cubicles are the perfect work space solution because they provide comfort yet keep employees accountable because they aren't totally confined to an office where they can hide what they're doing or accidentally take a longer break than they are supposed to.
The material-covered walls of cubicles create a soft environment that will help employees relax. They can decorate their space as they like, which will make their work area feel more like an extension of home than a working office. And they'll be able to eat lunch or rest during a break if they don't feel like socializing in the kitchen.
Because cubicles are movable and customizable, you can manage your office space efficiently and ensure that nothing has to be crammed into a corner in order to make it fit. Start by putting all the equipment and furniture in your office that is required for production, such as the copy machine and a receptionist's desk. Then plan your employee's cubicles around that equipment so you can size them properly and ensure an efficient fit.
If you're working with limited space, you can create double cubicles that will fit two employees inside at one time so you can use fewer cubicle walls in your design overall. You can also create small working spaces by using the walls as the backs of the cubicles. This will save you money on the cubicle walls and free up some room in the middle of the office to make movement among employees convenient.
Yet another great reason to design your office with cubicles is that you'll provide each employee and their clients with a private meeting space without having to dedicate any part of the office for the occasion. As long as the cubicles are big enough to hold two chairs comfortably, they are big enough to accommodate a meeting with a customer. You can then turn that corner you've designated as a meeting area into a break spot or waiting area for clients who are early for their meetings.
