Open floor plans don’t always make for fun offices. Yet with the right execution and appropriate office furniture, an open floor plan can spice things up in your workplace and even boost employee satisfaction and productivity. Here are some of the advantages of this type of floor plan:
Lower cost of doing business
As the term suggests, an open office floor plan literally puts everyone in one room, with no dividers or walls to separate them. Given that open floor plans do not require partitions, a company can save a lot in terms of construction, materials, and labor. Instead of maintaining several individual spaces, the company only needs to manage one large area, which translates into lower utility bills.
Face to face
With everyone stationed in a single location, communication can take place with greater ease as compared to a closed office setting. When it’s easier to communicate, teamwork benefits as supervisors can keep a closer eye on subordinates in the absence of closed-door offices or cubicles.
Get versatile after a while
The best thing about open office plans is the ability to adjust or change the layout without stopping work, say, during promotions or addition of personnel. With modular office furniture, changing or rearranging your office floor plan can happen faster than you can say “Break time’s over!”
