The company I work for definitely motivates the workers by the offices available.
- When I first started out I was in an incubator office set up.
There was a long table with chairs in front of each computer monitor. Six people would be seated at the table on one side with six people across from them. I could not move my arms or legs without hitting someone next to me or in front of me. It was sort of a miserable experience. A lot of the workers would text off the computers to people just a few seats down. Most people would take personal calls and talk right next to my ear. I worked really hard to move from an incubator office to an actual office setup. Two promotions later I was able to get my own office space away from everyone. I have my own desk, chair and space. I can shut the door on everyone and the blinds to keep them from seeing me. I can take work calls where no one can hear and stretch my legs out without hitting everyone. Most people think I was a suck up and that is how I moved up so fast in the company. I honestly just worked hard to get where I am at because I hated sharing a workspace with so many people. I bet the company does incubator offices for rent to motivate workers and also save money on office space rental costs. The company only has to keep a few office spaces on hand and one conference room with this business set up.
