As you analyze your choices concerning office cubicles, you need to know what doesn’t work with your current office space layout. What does work? What do your employees like the most? What do they dislike (and tell you about)? Before you make a decision on a merchant and place your order, take all of these problems under review so you can discuss them with one of our cubicle specialists.
View Your Office Space
Look particularly at the space where you will be installing your new office cubicles. If you have different arrangements for your current sets of office cubicles, you had a purpose for having them set up this way. If it worked when you ordered these cubicles, does this layout work now? If not, why?
You may have hired employees (or laid employees off) depending on the economic environment. One or more of your divisions may have grown bigger, making your existing layout inadequate for current workers. Take comprehensive notes so you can detail how many office cubicles you need at this time.
Option 1: Ordering the Same Cubicle Design for Everyone
From salespeople all the way up to administrators, everyone will have the same cubicle layout. Each cubicle will have the same storage and arrangements. Areas with employees who work with classified information will have the same cubicle as bookkeepers and receptionists. Your information technologies and graphic design departments will work in those office cubicles as well.
º No confusion about who gets what cubicle layout
º Consistency of cubicle design
º Staff who need privacy for their work won’t have the higher walls
º Ambient noise will affect everyone, no matter their job roles
º Managers won’t be able to talk privately to staff or guests
Option 2: Customizing New Cubicles to Each Employee’s Role
Purchasing office cubicles with higher dividing partitions, additional storage, and sound damping materials that cut down on the unwanted noise allows your employees to work more comfortably and efficiently.
Supervisors and human resources workers will be able to work on private paperwork without fretting that someone who shouldn’t see the information can do so as they walk by.
Those information technology workers and graphic artist will be able to work in a somewhat calmer atmosphere – those higher walls will deflect the sounds of conversations and phone calls.
Administrators who work inside enclosed cubicles will, in effect, have private offices. Those conferences with customers and workers will remain private and the managers can work undisturbed by excess noise.
Option 3: Ordering the Same Cubicles And Supplementing With Dividers
Order the same office cubicles and add partitions and dividers. Adding fabric wall partitions will help you to keep the noise from adjacent areas from bothering employees who need more quiet.
You’ll also have the choice of buying desktop privacy partitions so human resources and managers will be better able to maintain the level of confidentiality for their paperwork.
Option 4: Ordering Closed Cubicles for Managers
Your managers have told you they really need more privacy than an open cubicle offers them. Look at small, enclosed cubicles with doors that shut so they can get the quiet and privacy they need.
