How To Deal With Your New Office’s New Open Floor Plan

How To Deal With Your New Office’s New Open Floor Plan

Jan 05


“I feel like I’m being not only demoted, but punished. Every day I walk in and think, I must be being punished for something.”

While so many companies are moving to completely open floor plans, there’s bound to be some discontent, especially among those who previously held offices. I recently experienced this drastic change at my company, the result being that our CEO sits in a cubicle the exact same size as mine. Seriously. Prior to the move, people were undeniably antsy. On the first day in the new office, everyone looked positively shell-shocked.

Stegmeier Consulting’s Insight…

This article offers some great insight from someone who has had to learn to adapt to a new open-office environment.  The shame is that these ideas and suggestions (along with many others) could have been introduced to this workplace long before any kind of change took place.
