Square footage comes at a premium these days and so it’s really important to make the most efficient use of office space possible. It’s no wonder then that open plan working areas are so popular.
Also, like many bosses, you might think that these environments encourage collaboration among workers.
That said, these offices aren’t without their problems and one issue that may be a real worry for you is noise. It’s amazing how quickly conversations can crescendo into a monumental din that makes concentration virtually impossible. The louder the background noise, the more people have to raise their voices to be heard, and so the viscous circle continues.
At times, the productivity of your personnel may seriously suffer because of the racket going on around them. Of course, this is bad news for your bottom line.
Simple but effective
If you haven’t already invested in office screens, now could be the time to do so. These items are so simple in design, and yet so effective. By strategically placing them around your working environment, you can dramatically reduce noise levels and help ensure your workers benefit from a calm environment in which to get on with their tasks.
Here at Calibre we offer a range of these products and should have exactly what you need.
Take your pick
Desk dividers can be great in call centre environments, while floor screens can be used to separate different departments or teams. These items also come in handy if you want to cordon an area off to stage interviews or hold meetings.
