Engaged Employees Do Not Belong in Cubicles
Posted by Insightlink on 11/09/15
How can we be expected to think outside the box if we work inside a box?
Cubicles stacked in rows fill office floors, crowding people alongside each other like bees in a hive. White collar workers don business attire and commute long distances to sit inside their box emailing and talking to other people sitting in similar boxes in office buildings like theirs and then repeat the morning commute in reverse. If you are motivated to improve levels of employee engagement in your office, you may want to consider how people work as part of your planning.
Insightlink’s own normative research revealed that people who work in cubicles are at the bottom of the list of satisfied employees; only 48% are satisfied with their work environment while the happiest (70%) were telecommuters or people who work from home.
Studies show that the reasons for this unhappiness are due to environmental temperature problems, lack of privacy and noisiness from neighboring workers. Other reasons that employees don’t like cubicles are due to feelings of lost autonomy, and they feel they receive less recognition, maybe in part because they are lumped together so that individual achievements don’t stand out.
