As laughter rings out in the work place, I will attempt to get some work done. Did I mention it sounds like FAKE LAUGHTER. The worst kind!
The beauty of the OPEN CONCEPT work space. No work is accomplished when we don’t all play by the same rules.
You know everyone’s business OR, you think you do! Do you get ticked off because you aren’t part of the conversation? Part of the answer is realizing it doesn’t matter.
Open Office Concept Configuration, is it the toughest part of your day.
Do you miss having walls that help not only keep a certain amount of focus in your day, but also give you a place to display your personal affects!
Many open concept offices are also personality free, this is so you focus not on clutter but the work. Toss it out, when you are looking for something – go buy new!
Seems kind of odd, doesn’t it?
Companies have made a lot of cash on Open Office Concepts – including the people that make headphones and ear-buds!
The guys bug me about having papers, stuff I transport from one spot to another. My locker has a few things stashed away, but generally I don’t have any indication of personal tastes.
For that reason, people don’t really get to know who you are, there are no obvious conversation starters!
But it is also freeing to know that you get up and leave, no worry of someone messing with your stuff!
To those of you working in an office, if you haven’t already got them, invest in headphones.
You’ll be a complete turn off when it comes to making conversation, but you’ll get your work done!
