BBC staff banned from having rubbish bins near their desks to stop them being “territorial and defensive” – Telegraph

 

BBC staff have been banned from having rubbish bins near their desks to stop them being “territorial and defensive”. – Telegraph.

I’ve been in a few newsrooms now and while I applaud the attempt to get staff out of their fiefdoms and mixing with people on other desks, I can’t see how this heavy-handed policy is going to work. Is forcing staff to walk to the photocopier to dispose of their banana skin really going to help them come up with the next big story or technological innovation? Somehow I doubt it.
