Desk dividers are often overlooked when it comes to re-furnishing offices. However, there are many benefits of installing partition screens that you may not be aware of.
Define Work Spaces: Ideal for separating work surfaces, especially within open plan offices, desk dividers can help to provide each employee with a sense of ownership and responsibility over their work area. This can encourage organisation and tidiness, as well as helping individuals to feel valued. It can also help to prevent the loss of files and important notes as they are easier to keep track of in clearly defined areas. Staff can also personalise their own work space to their own taste and add individual touches which has been shown to improve well-being.
Branding, Design and Use of Colour: Office screens can also be used to liven up the work space or express your brand’s personality and values. Use brand colours or have your logo applied to screens to bring your branding into the office.
Security: Strategically placed screens can help to protect sensitive information in open plan and shared offices. You can also opt to install acoustic screens which can help to block out noise pollution from the rest of the office and prevent your employee’s voices from traveling when private phone calls are held.
Break Up the Space: Open plan offices can seem particularly boring, characterless and endless. Desk dividers are a simple way to break up the space and inject some colour. You can also define departments within the office by colour coding the screens.
Practicality: An often overlooked benefit of desk screens is their storage and organisation capabilities. They can also provide employees with increased desk space by holding and storing a number of desk accessories. Choose desk partitions with tool rails to store stationery and files. You can also attach a monitor arm to these rails to lift computer screens off of the desk – this also has ergonomic benefits. A pinnable screen can also help employees to organise memos, calendars and even add photos for a personal touch.
