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.
Making Visitors and Clients Feel Welcome and Comfortable Every business must understand that the company brand extends even to the offices. It shows how committed the organization is to get excellent work done and to make their staff happy and comfortable. The reception area could possibly be the only chance of the company to make a good impression to a potential client visiting the office. The design should make the reception table or desk stand out and easily be recognised. Here visitors can be welcomed and orientated. If at first sight a potential client immediately feels comfortable the company begins to build the notion that they can be trusted. It is now very popular to contract the services of experts in this field to help the business achieve this very goal.
Noise Employees have difficulty working productively in noisy environments since stress levels increase and concentration is lowered. There are many design tricks architects can employ to deal with poor acoustics. Using the correct materials in the correct location is key to achieving the proper level of sound absorption. For example ceiling tiles should generally be applied at a low ceiling height. If the ceiling is very high then other methods need to be applied such as lining the walls with fabric banners or acoustical wall panels to avoid the sound bouncing off of drywall or other non-absorbent materials. To keep voices from traveling too far it is useful to places highly-absorbent materials at mouth level throughout the office. Another effective technique in limiting a noisy environment is to create a monotone background sound known as white noise. This can be achieved in a variety of ways such as through the strategic placement of fans and air conditioners the use of water fountains or by installing a sound masking audio system.
