Not only does activity-based working minimize office friction. It also does wonders on companies' overall expenses! Let us explain.
A workplace that is not optimized, can trigger friction. This unnecessary friction is often translated into decreased productivity, hampered work relations and lowered employee wellbeing. As an end result, a vast number of hidden costs arise.
Activity-based working on the other hand, aims to reduce time wasting and tear down barriers for interaction. To achieve this, an ABW office is transformed from fixed work stations into creative environments adapted to fit the employees’ needs and varied assignments. The mobile employees themselves chose the location of where they wish to work, which leads to that the number of work desks (and fixed cost) decreases. But that is not all.
By implementing ABW, companies can magically lower costs in the following areas:
- Office rent
- Internal cabling and wired IT provisioning
- Printers, paper and related equipment
- Service charges
- Energy bills
- Maintenance costs for equipment or building
- Churn costs
- Business rates
- Travel costs for staff
Sounds pretty good, doesn't it?
