Creating a Productive Workplace: Part Two

FROM LAYOUT TO LIGHTING, WHAT DO YOU NEED TO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION?

LEVERAGE THE LAYOUT

Many businesses and organizations are shifting to open office designs to inspire and encourage collaboration. These environments can be energizing and cost-effective, and especially helpful when it comes to transparency. But while open environments have tons of benefits, some individuals simply need separation in order to focus and do their best work. The good news? You can have both!

One way to encourage interaction while still protecting privacy, is with moveable walls. Moveable walls are a great addition to any workspace, as they allow employees to work in private, but don’t detract from the overall collaborative setting. Small work booths can also give a communal yet personal feel, and other types of partitions and enclosures can help keep natural light in while keeping noise out.

We’ve created a range of spaces for various work cultures, and have seen several times how certain job positions require a semi-private layout where employees have the opportunity to collaborate when needed. By combining shared panels and shared surfaces with additional seating for guests, your office can have the best of both worlds. Benching applications, which provide shared access to materials and allow for coordination across tasks, are an affordable and reliable solution to keeping your team on task. These applications are also great for those employees who do not need as much work surface but still need space and small filing needs.
