Within a business space, although there may be a hierarchal order, staff work together and interaction is required on a daily basis. As traditional business space trends have changed and there has been more of a demand for companies to make use of teams, businesses are favoring open plan offices over the traditional cubicle.
How much business time does staff use up to browse through their social networking sites on a daily basis? The answer to that question is probably over 50% of the day. Open office space makes it more difficult to waste time playing games or surfing the net. In fact open plan layouts tend to hold employees responsible for their productivity as they are much more exposed than they would be in an enclosed office space.
However considering the rising competition within the South African business arena, open plan offices lend themselves to many benefits for both staff and the company as a whole.
Open plan offices are usually easier for managers and supervisors to manage as everyone is within the same space. This then makes the handling of issues, queries and concerns much easier to sort out. Should the arrangement of the desks etc need to be changed, open plan offices can be moved around quickly and with minimal effort. Find open plan office space.
