The Balcom Agency in Texas recently took a long, hard look at their work surroundings (standard office fare of white walls and grim little cubicles) and realized that it didn't at all reflect the creativity of the people who worked there (not to mention the decor was really getting everyone down). Grace of Design*Sponge reports that in an interesting move, the management decided to let the employees redo their own spaces, "...giving each employee a $300 allowance (some used additional funds of their own) plus a new desk and new chair to redo their cubicles. Cassie (one of the employees) said that at first they thought it might end up looking like a carnival, but they all were pleasantly surprised." Have a look at the inspiring results at the Design*Sponge website.
