Office cubicles have been popular since they first took off in the 1960s.
Every business since then has started installing cubicles to provide a sense of privacy for their employees—even if they’re just really in one big room.
And yet, these structures are not permanent—as compared to walled offices—they are modular, and they can be changed and adjusted easily.
Their popularity continued up to when employees started hating working in cubicles. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, cubicles were widely mocked in television shows and movies.
In the past several years, many studies have come out saying cubicles in offices have weighed on employees’ morale and output.
People don’t like the feeling of being put in a small box and then being expected overflow with productivity.
According to a study by Oxford Economics, employee satisfaction and productivity are dampened by distractions in the workplace caused by cubicle setups.
And this gave rise to the adoption of open-plan spaces in the workplace. The open concept equates spaciousness and flexibility.
The workspace does not look cramped. No more mini-walls hiding each and every employee—employees can see their co-workers right across their desks.
It is also said to foster ambient awareness and teamwork among employees.
And this also means more savings and cost-cutting measures for companies. There is no need to put in bulky cubicles—just long desks in a single, large (or even smaller) spaces.
That’s why there is a growing number of companies—whether big or small—ditching cubicles and favoring a more open office plan.
While cubicles are modular, deconstructing them is not an easy task. Cubicles have different parts, like shelving units, built-in furniture, panels, screws and connectors, and these need to be secured so they can still be used.
And more effort is needed in the removal and disposal of these bulky, mini-wall structures.
