We’re already very mobile – the occupancy study we completed showed that most of us are away from our desk around 50% of the time. ABW takes advantage of this fact and offers you different areas specifically designed for different types of working and interacting – trying to do a variety of tasks within a large organisation from a single allocated desk isn’t always the most efficient way of doing things.
In an ABW environment some or all people share a diversity of different work settings that support a variety of activities. Whether you need a space to meet, to collaborate or to work quietly on your own, there will be an area for you and you team.
You’ll have a “Neigbourhood” that you might gravitate towards, but you’ll also have the choice to work with your team in different areas/work settings.
There will be times in the day when a team needs to be together – both informally and formally – and ABW offers a catered space for that. Then, once you break, there will be areas for smaller groups and individuals to move where they can best focus on the next task at hand.
