There aren't many businesses that are able to provide all their employees with a private office.

To help maximize space, many companies have a mix of private offices and cubicles. Invented by the furniture company Herman Miller more than 40 years ago, cubicles are those tiny workspaces that are partitioned off by a series of panels. They are designed to save space, while also giving employees a bit of privacy.

When choosing cubicles, businesses have quite a variety to choose from.  They can vary in size, shape and color. There are also options for low walls to create an open work environment, or high walls to give employees more privacy.
