How can it help your office?
According to the International Facilities Management Association, 70% of employees work in open office plans. Big shared workstations now start to take over traditional, more personal workspaces to increase the performance, information workflow and minimize the costs.
However, apart from many benefits coming from creating a shared workspace, there are a few drawbacks too. High noise level, constant distractions and stress, being a result of spending a whole day in a very busy environment, will sometimes have a negative impact on productivity and performance, giving you a result opposite to intended, after all.
Finding the right balance between shared and personal working spaces at your office can be very difficult, but is key to optimise the whole office’s performance and cost-effectiveness. That’s why in this edition of Bevlan Blog we’ll explain how creating quiet work areas and workstations can help everyone at the office achieve their best.
And we’ll start with Acoustic Furniture because these are very useful in reducing the noise level not only within shared workstations but also at bistro/breakout areas, meeting rooms and reception areas. Probably, the best thing about Acoustic Furniture is the wide range of products available. Unique design, noise-cancelling solutions and variety of sizes and configurations for you to choose from, ensure the best fit into every office interior.
If you are looking for a way to separate a small area from the rest of the office, Quiet Space is exactly what you need. Noise-cancelling features and comfortable atmosphere inside make it very adaptable. It can be used as a small meeting, or study room to minimize distractions and improve productivity, or as a relaxing breakout space to help staff get away from the busy environment and fully recharge their batteries before returning to their everyday duties.
But do you have to completely separate the specific area in order to stay away from the distractions? Of course not! There is a whole range of different solutions that can give you a similar result but keeping the whole space shared and open, for example, Acoustic Panels.
These can be configured as free-standing screens, which you can place exactly where you need, or as wall-mounted panels that will reduce the background noise coming from outside of the room.
