Office cubicles provide privacy and lessen the distraction of other activities in the immediate work environment, but they also take up a lot of space and restrict communication and access to resources and office furniture common to the entire staff. Consult with your staff and hear their opinions and feelings on the subject before making a decision.
Modular and mobile office furniture and cubicle walls provide a greater versatility. Rather than lock yourself into one solution, consider the fluidity of communication lines, the need to insulate from sound and clutter, and the importance of the happiness of the staff. Happy staff results in greater productivity and quality.
When choosing the office furniture, keep in mind that each work station though a cubicle, may have multiple staff involved in a similar task. Purchase modular office furniture that can be central to the work station and easy for each worker to access. Allow for any natural light source available to be accessed at least in the common area if not each cubicle. Studies show that natural light assists workers to be healthier, more alert, and more productive.
Because of the restrictive confines of a cubicle, mobile computer desks, roll desk chairs, modular shelving and file cabinets, perhaps a roll away modular drafting desk or table would assist each worker to personalize the space and arrange the office furniture for their maximum productivity.
