How to Eliminate Distractions at Work
We’ve all heard the adage that time is money. Distractions at work are not only frustrating, but they can also add up to a lot of lost productivity. In one study from the University of California – Irvine, it was found that it takes an average of 25 minutes for a person to fully regain their focus on a task after being interrupted.
Open offices have many benefits, but they won’t be achieved if your office doesn’t include flexible spaces that support individual work. With the right tools, you can provide the right mix of spaces that help employees block distractions and stay focused throughout the day.
No matter how much you may like the people you share a desk with, seeing everything they do can be a distraction. Desk screens are a perfect solution to this problem. Bivi metal screens and tackable screens both easily attach to Bivi desks, adding privacy and giving people a chance to personalize their workspaces. Both types of screens can be used to hang up notes, reminders, and personal photos, giving people a sense of ownership over their space.
Blocking distractions doesn’t necessarily mean you always want to be isolated from the rest of the office. Movable screens are excellent for adding privacy in open offices and can be used to create as much or as little privacy as needed. Consider using screens to create zones around the office with varying degrees of seclusion. Campfire screens are semi-transparent and provide just enough privacy to block distractions, but still allow you to feel connected to your surroundings. Clipper screens aren’t as transparent as the Campfire Screens, but they’re perfect for creating privacy in any space.
When you really want to focus, seating with attachable screens can help you feel like you’re getting away without having to actually leave the office. Our Bivi Rumble seat is a comfortable seating solution on its own, but when used with the optional Rumble Seat Hoodie, it can be a perfect place to make a phone call, talk with a coworker, or concentrate on an individual task.
