Does Your Desk Suit Your Work Style?

Little Goblins - Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Discover the best office furniture solutions for three very different styles of work.

If you work in an office, your desk is most likely where you spend the majority of your work day. For this reason, it's important to consider how your desk or workstation may be impacting your productivity. Does it enable you to focus and perform at your best?

Within your office you may have noticed that different people have different work styles, enabling each individual to be more or less productive under various circumstances. While some excel in a high energy atmosphere, others require peace and quiet in order to produce their best work. With that in mind, it's important to optimize your desk or workstation so that it is conducive to your work style. 

Below are a few workspace solutions for high energy collaborators, quiet meditative thinkers, and those with combination work styles.

1. For High Energy Collaborators

For individuals that function best when they are able to bounce ideas off of colleagues and harness their collaborative energy, teaming stations with little to no partitions can be a great option. 

Our Recommendation: Employees with this type of high energy and collaborative work style can thrive with desking systems such as Evolve Benching Solutions and Bridges 2, as seen below.

2. For Quiet Meditative Thinkers

If employees prefer to work through projects on their own without disruption, more isolated desks that enable solitary, quiet workspaces can be a great solution. 

Our Recommendation: Desking systems that offer privacy panels, such as eO, are a good option if you are working with limited space, whereas free standing desks, such as Cube 3, work well for larger areas where desks can be spread out.

3. For Combination Work Styles

Not everyone will fit perfectly into one work style or the other. For employees that sometimes prefer to collaborate but may also need quiet time working alone, there are workstations that can accommodate both styles. 

Our Recommendation: In this case, desking systems that are flexible and versatile can help employees make the most of their workspace. Visit our past blog post on versatile workstations for more details.
