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.

How Do I Choose the Right Job for Me?
Whether you're just starting out in life, looking to make a career change or (lucky you!) trying to decide between multiple job offers, you may find the possibilities overwhelming. How do you figure out which job will best fit your skills, passion and personality? What if you aren't fully qualified for the job you want?   Here are some methods that may help you identify — and land — your perfect job.   Describe Your Ideal Job and Employer This is about more than your work duties.

What types of activities do you like best — group/team efforts or working by yourself; a structured routine or planning your own workflow; a hands-off boss or one that keeps an eye on everything; high pressure deadlines or a relaxed pace; tons of overtime or work-life balance? What duties did you most enjoy that you would like...

How Recruiting Will Change in Light of COVID-19
  If you’ve been on the internet in the past week, month, day, or half-hour, you’ve most likely seen some version of the headline, “How COVID-19 Will Permanently Alter [Insert Industry Here].”   And for a good reason. The pandemic has shined a light on the lack of a business continuity plan in many industries — including recruiting. The process of building teams is quickly evolving for countless companies, and this change is especially daunting for organizations that lack a flexible staffing strategy.   Whether trying to find temp workersor something a bit more permanent, recruiting and staffing won’t be the same once the pandemic subsides. What will it look like then?   1. It’ll be from a distance. Social distancing won’t just be a solution for decluttering restaurants and bars. Recruiting from a distance — and with the help of virtual technology — will be essential to any business continuity plan.   Much of the recruiting cycle (e.g., sourcing, interviewing, etc.)...
