Cool DIY Ways to Makeover Your Cubicle

  • screen shot 2016 06 17 at 5 02 29 pm

 

Is your dull, dreary cubicle dragging you down? It's not all in your head — studies show that environment has a major influence on mood, which has a big impact on productivity. Here are our favorite ways to personalize a soulless workspace.

 

Wall decor.

Cover up that depressing grey fabric by thumbtacking posters, framed art, wallpaper, gift wrap, a calendar, a wall clock, etc. Other ways to hang decor include over-the-rail hooks and clothespins on swags of string. Just make sure none of your hang-ups are NSFW.

 

Colorful accessories.

Pick one or two colors and use them to coordinate everything from your pencil cup to picture frames. If you can't find the color you want, get a can of plastic paint from the craft store.

 

Binder clip magic.

How many things can you create with clips? Look what this guy did!

 

Hard surface brighteners.

Metal and plastic parts such as your desk or computer can also be jazzed up with removable products that won't damage paint. Painters tape, washi tape and peel-off decals all come in loads of styles and colors.

 

Comforts of home.

Add a lamp, fan/space heater (depending on whether your office is too hot or too cold), lumbar support pillow or throw rug. One thing NOT to bring is candles — we have seen them set off the smoke alarm.

 

Plants.

Potted plants don't just look good, they add oxygen to the air, which could improve your mental sharpness. Choose a variety that can survive neglect, such as the ones on this list. Or if you're going for an elegant look, bring in a vase of cut flowers.

 

Sticky notes art.

2D or 3D designs ... the only limit is your imagination. This compilation shows how extreme you can get.

 

A quick browse on Pinterest will show you thousands of other ideas. Just remember the cardinal rule: don't do anything that permanently changes or damages the office equipment. After all, it belongs to the company, not you.

AI in HR: Facilitating Flexible Scheduling
In our new study "Artificial Intelligence for Recruiting Success," we discussed ways that new technology can save us time and effort while attracting a better pool of job candidates. In this article, we'll turn our attention to a tool that helps provide one of candidates' most desired job benefits, while requiring minimal time and effort on our part.   Work-life balance and the flexible schedule appear to be here to stay. Surveys show that 77% of Millennials1 and 51% of Generation Z2 prefer flexible working hours. In fact, some experts predict that the traditional 9-to-5 job will be pretty much dead by 20303.   The good news for businesses is that giving employees flexibility does increase morale, overall work hours and productivity;4 and if most employees telecommute, it reduces the need for expensive corporate office space. The bad news is that it can be a logistical nightmare. That's where artificial intelligence comes in.   Here are some types of software5 you may...
