To Cube, Or Not To Cube

Back to Blog
When setting up a new office space, deciding whether or not to use cubicles can be tricky. They have definite benefits in terms of privacy and cutting down on distractions, but not every office team will thrive in a cubicle setting. To figure out the best work space configuration for your staff, consider the following points: What Your Employees Actually Do.  Employees who talk on the phone or to the public all day will likely need a little more privacy, whereas those who spend most of their time typing on a computer might work better in an open space plan. Make sure each employee has the right space to foster their productivity. Aesthetics and Image. If you have a team of artists or designers who frequently collaborate, an airy, open aesthetic will work better than a series of cubicles. Staff will have more freedom to interact, and the open space will be more appealing to their creative nature.
