common practice in businesses is to put employees in their own
cubicles. A typical cubicle resembles an office, but its walls
do not reach the ceiling. Many office managers feel that a
cubicle floor plan has its own advantages. Cubicles make a large area
feel spacious. In addition, they can be moved around so that each new
employee can be accommodated in his or her own work area. Of
course, the cubicle model also has problems. The typical employee is
not as happy with a cubicle as he or she would be with a
traditional office. Also, productivity can suffer. Neither managers
nor frontline workers can ordinarily do their best work in a cubicle
because of noise and lack of privacy. Workers can hear their
neighbors tapping on computer keyboards, making telephone calls, and
muttering under their breath.
