Nothing Beats a NxtWall Private Office!
For many years we have seen large Fortune 500 companies do away with cubicles and move toward the open seating concept, in the hopes it would lead to increased collaboration, better co-operation and more productive creative exchange among employees. In theory it was a good idea, but in practice things did not work out so well.
A study conducted by Ethan Bernstein and Stephen Turban, in 2018 found that: “workers who moved from a traditional office setting to an open plan became less productive” and “the volume of face-to-face interaction decreased significantly (approx. 70%)”. Today many employees collaborate virtually via Zoom or in conference rooms strictly adhering to social distancing requirements which is effective but when employees are working on a deadline– or even if they just need to hear themselves think– having their own office space is critical. For today’s workers– Nothing beats a private office.
Private Office space is now in high demand given the pandemic. Having a private office gives employees confidence to carry on phone conversations and handle sensitive material without co-workers peering over their shoulder or listening in. Having a door and four walls allows workers the ability to control the noise level and to work at their own pace without interruptions. But most of all having a private office makes employees happy, less stressed and in control of their own environment! Happy employees are productive employees.
