Today’s workers are craving a balance. Open offices foster collaboration but often leave people longing for a bit of privacy. Outside conversations can be highly distracting and there are times when information being discussed shouldn’t be overheard. But the rise of open offices doesn’t mean privacy in the workplace is a thing of the past.
We understand the value of teamwork, but it’s important to not overlook the value of solo work. Allowing people to have control over the environment they work in empowers them to produce their best work. By creating a variety of spaces in the office to allow for varying degrees of privacy and by utilizing tools to minimize distractions, open offices can be very productive and satisfying places to work.
