1. Control what’s coming in
You can control all the stimuli that comes in with a workplace that offers quiet spaces to its employees. It also helps cut down on distractions. Even in open offices with privacy screens, you can still be distracted by others, whether that’s someone walking past a lot or it’s someone who takes a lot of phone calls near your desk. And, of course, too many distractions in a workplace leads to a loss of productivity.
2. Have more control over what is shared
If there aren’t private quiet areas where employees can take personal phone calls or make their doctor appointments, then their other option is to share that information seemingly with the rest of the office. This could even pertain to their work if they’re working on something that requires confidentiality or needs to be signed off on by higher-ups that they’re waiting for approval on. Allowing your employees the space they need to work without fear is essential.
3. Less sickness spreading
In an office, it’s understood that, unfortunately, you’re more likely to get sick if someone else comes in sick. But by offering quiet areas for people to go and work in, you’ll reduce the chances of germs spreading and infecting more people.
