We love these creative ways to minimize noise in the office (and boost productivity).
One way is to permit employees a choice of spaces depending on what work they’re doing at any given time. “Allowing users in a workspace to relocate—or flow—to spaces that suit their needs, at that moment, increases productivity and satisfaction in the workplace,” Benson says. “Secondly understanding the type of work happening throughout the workforce is critical. Quiet zones, similar to that deployed on commuter rails, are becoming more and more popular.”
