New Office design

Background

As part of the office redesign project, I was asked to carry out a survey to assess staff attitudes to their workspace.

Findings

 

  • 1. Storage: According to the survey, the major complaint is lack of storage for both documents and personal belongings. Although 90 per cent of our information is stored electronically, 70 per cent is still printed out and filed. This trend is likely to continue.
  • 2. Quiet working space: Another concern is shortage of meeting rooms, particularly for informal meetings at short notice.

Recommendations

  • 1. The new design will need to incorporate more personal storage in order to reduce the amount of paper being generated. I also recommend training in electronic storage.
  • 2. The office design should also include separate meeting rooms and private areas for informal meetings.
