What type of space do you work in best?

Tired of sitting in your cubicle? Well, you can thank Intel, computer chip giant, for the popularization of the segmented cube working environment.

But the long-maligned cubicle, made infamous by Dilbert, Office Space, and others may be reaching its end. Companies are learning that the cube is not all it is cracked up to be. Not only does it stifle diversity, but it does not give people the work privacy it seems to. Though visually cut off from coworkers, most cube environments are not sound insulated.

Many companies are now realizing that open work environments promote teamwork and collaboration, and that small privacy rooms can be easily provided for those times when individual work is essential.

We are conducting our own non-scientific poll of what work environment suits you best. Surf on over to my home page at Stinson Brand Innovation to put in your response and see what others are saying!
