Sometimes, traditional cubicle layouts just won’t cut it.
Traditional cubicle layouts purpose was to liberate workers from isolation in private offices while maintaining autonomy and focus. However, work trends are changing and a shift to more accessible work settings have become prominent. An increased focus on the mobile workforce, efficiency and scalability have shifted focus in design to fostering collaboration. Office benching systems are open plan systems that encourage collaboration by situating individuals in close proximity at bench-like work surfaces. Office benching systems streamline work processes and support collaborative projects by emphasizing openness and connectivity. In addition, access to shared materials and resources becomes much easier, making team activities more manageable.
While office benching systems boast impressive statistics in collaboration and efficiency, the open-plan environment is certainly not a fit for every work space. Especially when it comes to systems furniture, factors unique to your business must be considered to find an effective setup.
