EYP's Leigh Stringer is one of the experts quoted in the Wall Street Journal article, "Why You Can't Concentrate at Work." “Visual noise,” activity or movement around the edges of an employee's field of vision, is disruptive to analytical thinking and creativity.

Successful tactics include modifying work station layouts; using plants to create green “walls”; and establishing quiet buffer zones between work spaces. Leigh offers her perspective on visibility's impact on employees. "Being visible to bosses and colleagues can make workers in some jobs feel pressured to conform to others’ expectations. If employees default to keeping their heads down and typing on their computers to look busy, rather than taking time to reflect or brainstorming with others, innovation or analytical work may suffer."
