Are Headphones The New Cubicle Walls?
I am for an open layout in an office. We (the marketing team) will be moving to an open layout soon so we can remove cubicle walls and office doors that are more nuisance than anything. However, there is a privacy element that is lost, so for that I bought the team headphones to let them focus and ignore distractive talking or someone else’s music. We will also be designating an old office for a quiet room that is set up for a laptop and phone so you can ‘get away’ if you need too. For me, it allows me to get closer to the team and work hand in hand. I am hoping that this will break down more barriers and support creative output.
