Random stuff, reflections on the meaning of life and death, humour, self-deprecation, a bit of bad poetry.

Our healthcare service is moving to a new site after 21 years at the old one. I woke up teary-eyed and emotional this morning. It’s not the change in building (though the new one is much further from the community we serve) that bothers so much as the fact that the new site has an open-plan space based on the dreaded cubicle-model.

What I am losing is an amazing office space, albeit run-down and worse for wear, and the camaraderie and support of a great bunch of colleagues.

I’ll never understand why a field that values evidence-based practice chooses to ignore the scientific data when it comes to this kind of logistical planning. “Today, studies show that these open work spaces have the opposite effect they were meant to, and actually reduce productivity and lower employee morale.

When we minions question these decisions we are told by management that we shouldn’t be negative even if the evidence tells us otherwise. If I sound jaded it’s because I’ve been down this road before: reforms, reorganization, moves.

One thing I can say for certain, this will be the last move of my career and if cubicle land becomes too unbearable, I will simply pack up my boxes for good.

        I’ve been there one week and I am exhausted from my surroundings and feel completely detached from my community . I’ve gone from a highly motivated employee who loved her job , to one who dreads going to work . Eye strain , headaches and back pain are my new normal . I left in tears last Friday .
        I wish I could be encouraging and supportive Sharon – but am at a loss …
