How Using Screenflex Products from Worthington Direct Can Help Companies Survive the Modern Day Cube Farm

Share Article

In this world dominated by a maze of cubicles in close proximity, good-old fashioned manners can go a long way to make the office environment more enjoyable.

Screenflex cubical products from Worthington Direct ( make today's cube workplace more productive and enjoyable.

Here's a short handbook about how to be a good cubicle neighbor.

● Do not barge into someone's cubicle space. Seek permission with a "knock" on the partition. Or try for some eye contact that tells you, "Yes, I can talk now."
● When walking by, refrain from glancing into everyone's space, craning your neck to see over partitions or staring at computer screens. And it's always bad form to hold impromptu meetings next to someone's cubicle wall.
● Go to the supply closet rather than "borrow" office provisions from other people's desks.
● Even though you can clearly hear others' phone conversations, they are private. Don't comment or ask questions about them.
● Leave voice mail or send e-mail when you want to talk to someone who's on the phone. It's not appropriate to stare at them until they hang up.
● Your phone is a marvelous piece of technology. Keep your voice low and you'll still be heard on the other end. Some exuberant people must develop a softer telephone voice.
● Put your telephone ringer on low and do the same with your computer volume. Better yet, mute your computer. Pagers and cell phones should be on vibrate.
●For private phone conversations use your cell phone away from the office or use a telephone in an unoccupied meeting room.
● Meet with clients and other guests in a conference room or other area away from the cube farm.
● Give a thought as to whether your office decorations, which are in plain view, might offend someone.
● Try not to shout questions or regale co-workers with anecdotes over the partitions.
● Restrain yourself from popping gum, clipping fingernails, cracking knuckles, smacking while eating, singing, drumming fingers or nervous tapping of any kind and refreshing your cologne. Phew.
