Open office floor plans are great, but sometimes you need privacy for delicate phone calls or concentrating on difficult tasks. In today's post we will discuss the benefits of an open floor plan, the importance of privacy, and how you can achieve both.
Even if you have never worked in an open office, odds are you have seen one in a photo, movie, or TV show. While the noise level can be up, an open floor plan offers increased interaction and workflow, decreased clutter, and a modern look. Who wouldn't love an environment in which it is easy to discuss work that needs to be done, and allows the flow of work to pass along seamlessly?
