Implementation of collaborative work efforts often present challenges in workspaces designed to support individual tasks and work processes. Many employers wish to foster collaborative work cultures and therefore form must follow function. The office environment must reflect and facilitate the functional goal of collaboration.
Through the evaluation of existing spatial allocation, departmental adjacency requirements, team member proximities, flow of information and technical accommodations, an assessment report will be developed outlining recommendations for space manipulation and reallocations to improve the collaborative mindset of the staff, thus facilitating a more effective teamwork atmosphere, increased productivity, creativity and innovation.
Well-designed environmental strategies in the workplace improve employee engagement and productivity. The final assessment report will combine information gathered from the initial questionnaire, site visit, interview of key personnel, observation of work execution, and equipment inventory.
