Blue Note

Pamela needs to get a grip. I appreciate her attention to detail – it’s why we hired her in the first place – but she’s always getting hung up on specifics that are far outside the realm of her role, and it’s driving everyone bonkers. She claims she’s a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), and that may well be true, but I’m not sure if it warrants her getting special treatment. At the end of the day, the changes she wants made are her individual preferences, not objective assessment, and they are unlikely to benefit everyone. 


There’s a surprising amount to be taken under consideration when it comes to office interiors. For Melbourne businesses looking to get ahead in a competitive commercial landscape, office design is key – nothing can be left to chance, or to the tastes of any one individual. It’s all about creating an environment that works optimally across the whole organisation, which means making well-informed compromises. Pamela, it seems, is having difficulty with this concept. 


For example, she claims to be ‘visually allergic’ to cool tones, which have been shown to have a calming effect that gives rise to clear-headedness and enhanced communication. She says they disrupt circadian rhythms, and that we need to take this into account or else expect to have a growing number of OHS claims on our hands down the track due to sleep deprivation and increased stress.


Well, Pamela, if you’re so knowledgeable about the adverse effects of colours applications in office interior fitouts, Melbourne probably needs to hear what you have to say. Why not take up a public stance on the matter, instead of sending me terse daily emails making thinly veiled threats about what will happen to the company if we don’t comply precisely with your personal preferences?


The thing about circadian rhythms is inaccurate, by the way. I looked into it. Pamela, your foolishness knows no bounds.
