The ‘open’ design of the office is the trend, but there are times and circumstances in which both employees and customers need some degree of privacy.
In that sense, design curtains and other elements can be used to grant the necessary privacy to the certain office spaces and meeting areas. Although the best system is the electronic one, as it allows to operate a system of opacity to the glass to have intimacy.
It is also necessary to take into account the need for good acoustic insulation, because the glass does not always offer the necessary characteristics for this and the office is usually a place where verbal communication is the main matter.
You can also continue analyzing the different aspects related to a modern look of the office, which as a business operations center of a company represents a very important element.
Technology in the Company’s Office
The easy and fast access to technology by the employees is very important. The office should have good computer equipment, and high-speed fiber-optic internet connections.
It is also almost necessary to have a multifunction station for the printing of documents, a telephone exchange, and above all it is very important that all the technological elements are correctly linked to achieve a higher level of productivity.
Having laptops, tablets and smartphones will also accelerate the response times in order to efficiently solve the different circumstances that may arise.
The Meeting Room of the Office
The office of the company must have a meeting room, which will also be used to conduct training courses, and eventually be used as an alternative space to serve the customers.
The meeting room should have internet access and one large HD screen for video conferencing and presentations. It is very important that it allows to raise the degree of privacy if necessary, it should also have a good soundproofing.
Its furniture should be functional and adaptable to the needs that may arise. Last but not least, the meeting room is useful for integrating a whiteboard into your furniture to be used as an extra tool.
The white boards to be used with markers facilitate the arguments through simple diagrams made in real time. I insist that they are not a technological element, although they are very useful at the functional level.
