As you ponder what your office needs to look like in a mobile technology world keep in mind that office design includes more than just the layout furniture and type of equipment used in the office. It also includes the policies that dictate how when and where your employees perform their work. While its important for everyone to be in the office on some days we believe this flexibility enables our staff to work more efficiently and contributes to their work/life balance. Our phone system is also set up to support a mobile workforce. We have an office line for clients to call in to but no landline office phones. Instead the phone line is a virtual one that automatically forwards calls directly to company mobile phones. This way we dont need to worry about setting up call forwarding when we arent in the office.
Instead of isolating people in private offices and rows of cubicles offices will become much more fluid and flexible. Companies will build in lots of open space to encourage creativity and communication. Office furniture will become less rigid more movable and more comfortable. As people shift from desktops to laptops and tablets there will be fewer assigned desks or cubicles. Instead employees will gather and work where they can be most productive. At the same time the work office will no longer occupy a fixed location for increasing numbers of workers. If youve ever answered a business email at home or conducted an important client call from the airport you know that this trend has already begun. As adoption rates for mobile technologies continue to soar working outside the office on a regular basis will soon become the rule rather than the exception for many employees.
Noise Can Be Managed in a Better Way Office space planning involves the right placement of equipment furniture and dividers in order to minimise noise where needed. In a call center for example interior designers will carry out a design that can give enough privacy in every workstation and ensure that the noise in one area does not affect other much. Although the noise levels in most offices are rarely damaging some tasks and work activities still need enough concentration that too much noise might interrupt. An effective design that places office equipment such as printers and faxes away from the staff can help prevent noise from affecting the productivity of employees.
