I would encourage you to rethink you're assumptions a little bit
here.  If everyone is hanging out in one room just talking, 
maybe it's because they're perfectly happy hanging out in one
room talking.  In short, if your users don't see this as a problem
that they've been complaining to you about, why do *you* see
it as a problem?
