Everyone knows working in a noisy environment can be distracting, and often, you find yourself listening in on another conversation – who’s guilty?
Office layouts and how businesses operate look different from what they did a few years ago. Modern offices are embracing open-plan spaces and implementing collaborative working over unconventional arrangements like the classic cube office structure.
While open-space layouts are aesthetically designed, facilitate collaboration, and encourage interaction, these spaces are susceptible to noise and distractions, impacting employee productivity.
So how do you get the best of both? Here’s how:
Much of the problem for open office spaces is the hard surfaces that bounce sound around rather than absorb it. Sound transmission can easily be mitigated by adding soft furnishings to an area, such as carpet, furniture, multipurpose booths pods and acoustic treatments.
