We all know that space is a commodity in the office, so designing room for everyone is a high priority. Nevertheless, when designing your new cubicle layout, do not forget about incorporate spaces that will be big enough to hold employee conferences or areas in which workers can move away from their personal office space to work together with other workers. Also, be sure to incorporate spaces to hold that critical client meeting or job interview.
Take a good look at how often each division interacts with all other departments. Then create a cubicle layout where each department is not only united but also close to the other employees with whom they communicate with frequently. Keep in mind that the less time staff spend away from their desks, the more time they spend producing.
While cubicle workstation design is important, so is personal cubicle design. Inform your employees to be aware of how they communicate with each other. Performing in the heart of the digital age, you might see your employees are employing emails, texts, or instant messaging. Ask yourself, is this because they are separated too much? If your team is more inclined to have face-to-face discussions with each other, this is where customizing your new cubicles is important. Keep your cubicle partitions low enough to facilitate discussion, but not too low that it prevents privacy.
