If you work in an office environment, chances are you’ve been assigned to a cubicle at one point or another. And if you’re like most people, you probably thought it would be good to get rid of the cubicle walls – except that it turns out five feet by five feet isn’t that small. With just these few simple tips, you can make your workspace efficient and maximize the limited space available to you in your 5×5 cubicle while still making it feel like home.
Use Color Strategically
At my cubicle call center, each employee gets an average size cube that is five feet by five feet. When we first got our cubes, we were all complaining about how small they were but now we have adapted and found ways to make the most out of them. For example, we make sure that there is always a good supply of color in our cube to brighten up the area or use personal decorations. If it’s cold outside then people will put some knickknacks like coffee mugs on their desks as decoration or for warmth. There are also bookshelves where some employees have used their space wisely by putting books on one side and using other parts for art pieces or displaying plants.
Work From Anywhere
The type of cubicle design you want will depend on your need. If you need privacy and want people to be able to pass your desk easily without disturbing you, get one that’s as wide as possible, at least five feet across. If you prefer being social, get one that is narrower so there’s more interaction with coworkers in nearby cubicles. Plus, some offices use small rectangular cubicles for call centers where everyone sits together nearby. These can maximize space and usually only have enough room for two monitors.
Try Different Activities In Your Cubicle
Here are my suggestions for making the most out of your small workspace.
-Do as much as you can in advance. Create To-Do lists, create your templates for responding to common requests, and do some online research. This will save you time in the long run. -Try standing up at your desk. Stand up for a few minutes at a time during your work day when it is easy and natural to do so (i.e., while on phone calls). You’ll feel energized and refreshed by this break from sitting all day! Standing up also gives muscles time to rest before they have to be used again.
The cubicle call center has taken over more than a fair share of large corporations in the US. The rise of these centers began as soon as portable offices became available and are now found in nearly every industry, from healthcare to education, and even media agencies. The major benefit for companies with these workstations is that they can save money on office space and staffing costs, while also providing an easy way for employees to work outside their homes or office.
Organize Everything You Own
On the surface, there doesn’t seem to be much I can do with my cubicle. It’s a small space that is limited in its layout. And yet, after some time and consideration, I have come up with some ways to make it feel less cramped and limiting. This post will go over five tips for maximizing your little home away from home!
Keep Things Simple
1. Keep your workspace tidy.
2. Take care of yourself by eating well and exercising regularly.
3. Re-evaluate your needs as they change and make adjustments accordingly.
4. Use design tricks like shapes, colors, textures, artwork, books, and plants to draw people into your space and bring some personality into the mix for better mental health at work!
5. Consider re-arranging furniture when you start feeling stuck in your routine or doing things that don’t need to be done like cleaning up after everyone else!
6. Experiment with what works best for you – we all have different preferences!
