Is it time to add partitioning to your office?
For many years open plan office systems have been viewed as the template for efficient modern workplaces, but could that be set to change?
In a recent article written for The Telegraph by Dr Nicole Millard, an expert in data, analytics and emerging technology, she argues that the concept of an open plan office has become antiquated and will be phased out in the coming decade.
Dr Millard, the Vice President of Customer Experience at BT Global Services, explained that recent studies have shown that open plan offices tend to feel cramped, encourage interruption and loss of focus, and decrease the levels of productivity achieved by employees.
In addition, she highlighted the recent trend for businesses to return to partitioned or segregated working areas that are better suited to individuals or small teams, as large office spaces are increasingly viewed as ‘inefficient, especially for introverts who work better when they are not disturbed’.
Does any of this sound familiar? Then it may be time to reconsider how your office space is working for you and your business.
