30 Sep The Need for a Little Privacy and the Solution of the Pod
We all need a little privacy. But sometimes, when you’re in the middle of an open office, it can be hard to get “alone time.”
First, let’s talk about why this is even an issue. Employees nowadays bring their home to work, and their work to home. The boundary between “work” and “home” has been blurred, in both directions. Employees, for example, may want to have a “private” conversation about their medical issues at the office. The other employees may not want to hear about it. Or, HR may need to have a confidential meeting with an employee and here the other employees cannot legally even hear it. Or, an employee in one office may need to do a ZOOM call with an employee in another office and DUE TO THE BAD CONNECTION, they may be SHOUTING into their phones. Privacy is a “good thing” at times, and we all need it.
The Open Office and its Enemies
Second, let’s talk about the “open office.” “Open offices” became a thing about ten years ago. The best intentions were here. They wanted to break down barriers. They wanted to encourage teams and teamwork. And, in many ways, they succeeded. Yet open offices have their “enemies.” Some people hate the concept and long for the privacy of private offices. Yet open offices can be great! We’re not against open office (nor against open warehouses, open industrial facilities, open airports, or other big indoor but open spaces). Openness is a good thing, in and of itself. But openness isn’t the only thing. In today’s “open office,” many workers need some privacy. Not all the time, but some of the time.
