TRUTH !!
In the 1940's Hewlett-Packard established an "Open-Door" policy, which dictates that all
cubicles were to be open at all times and that executive offices have no doors at all. This
policy encouraged employees to feel comfortable about discussing issues with their
managers and promoted a sense of openness and mutual trust.
