Why Understanding Employee Needs Is Important When Choosing Office Furniture
One of the first things our professional designers do when they come to your office for a design consultation is ask questions about what employees will be doing in the space. We then design a plan with furniture that takes into consideration the comfort and needs of your employees so they can be productive. This is one of the most important things to think about when choosing your office furniture.
In this article about measuring the human condition when designing an office by Christina Herrera (https://workdesign.com/2019/03/why-measuring-the-human-condition-results-in-better-space-design), it talks about the importance of employees feeling safe in the work space and how the office furniture placement can make such a difference with how employees feel. It also talks about the importance of taking into account what employees are doing around the area in the office that is most attractive when deciding what to change in your office.
"First-hand observations (qualitative data) may reveal that the types of collaboration required for them to do their best work does not include white-boarding or meeting in rooms, instead quick conversations which they can have from their desks by simply catching each other’s eye over their monitor."
