To Cubicle or Not To Cubicle?

When starting a new business or even moving in to a new office space, sometimes your space can be a blank canvas. There are so many decisions to be made – how may offices, conference rooms, cubicles and open spaces – even cubicle wall height can be from 0 to 7 feet high.

In order to make these decisions, its helps to have an idea of your corporate culture and what you are trying to accomplish:

  1. Is your culture open and collaborative?
  2. Is your culture more closed and private?
  3. Do some of your employees require security and privacy based on the work that they do
