THE ACTIVITY BASED WORKPLACE

WORK IS BECOMING A FUNCTION NOT A PLACE.

More and more office environments are based on the principles of keeping people optimally productive regardless of where they are. Assigned workstations are becoming obsolete and the office interior solution is suddenly more critical than ever.

Activity Based Working is not a one size fits all approach. xchange‘s role is to help map out the best route for getting there. What you want Activity Based Working to do for your organization determines the journey your organization will need to take. In very broad
terms organizations choose to implement Activity Based Working for a combination of three core aspirations:

Development, Communication, Cooperation

Consultation & service throughout the entire process.
The journey starts with an analysis to identify the optimal planning, optimize each square meter in the office and make most of the budget and prevent bad investments. We will create environments for development, communication and cooperation. This will promote health, well-being and job satisfaction.

Clients have experienced a number of significant benefits when implementing ABW as a new way of working.

– A few of these include:
– 10% – 15% increase in productivity
– 30% – 45% reduction in square metres required
– 40% – 80% decrease in the cost of churn
– 10% increase in engagement scores

FLEXIBLE, INSPIRING & SUSTAINABLE INTERIOR SOLUTIONS

At xchange, we take care of every aspect of the activity-based way of working. Our flexible, inspiring and sustainable interior solutions will convert any traditional office of today into an attractive workplace of tomorrow. Through workshops and one-on-one interviews,
we conduct a thorough evaluation of how your business is set up and what your specific needs are. With this as the groundwork, we then create an interior solution that is optimized for your specific business, no matter how small or large you are.

Why activity based work?

– Increases productivity as it raises awareness
– on how to work optimally
– Promotes natural interaction as collaboration is facilitated
– Increases employee satisfaction
– Increases space efficiency

A variety of spaces must be provided to accommodate the various work settings envisaged in ABW. These include: quiet areas are required for work that requires high levels of concen- tration; formal and informal meeting areas a diverse range team activities; visually private areas for tasks that are confidential; and “bump” spaces for informal meetings. Careful analysis of an organisation’s work style must be undertaken to ensure the right types of spaces are provided. Food and coffee areas com- bined with informal meeting spaces provide such a setting. Since workers do not have a permanently assigned workspace, storage for personal technology and other personal items need to be provided. Typically each person is allocated a storage locker in their “home territory”.

We help you create:

– Areas for informal conversations and networking
– Silent zones for concentration tasks
– Creative spaces for stimulating collaborations
– Conference rooms that support full technical integration
