Did you know that with optimizing the use and layout of your workplaces, you can
reduce costs of housing with up tot 10%!?
Furthermore you can upgrade your image, the employee satisfaction or the
quality of the products or services by doing so….
Most companies struggle to reduce costs and most consequences of
cost reductions have a negative effect on employee or client satisfaction.
Effect invites you to discuss the possibilities to set a hold to these
developments and discuss the possible optimizations and cost reductions.
Depending on the
purpose of the analysis and the available budget and time, various tools
will be used to give a detailed overview of the current workplace and the
possibilities for optimization and change:
-Time utilization study; gives an insight in facts about occupancy and
activities during the day and during the week of all types of work settings
and per team;
-Interviews and survey; interviews with key persons in the organization give
an insight in employee satisfaction, perceptions of the (use of the) work
environment, possible future developments et cetera. A survey offers all
users the possibility to be involved;
-Observation and desk research; give an insight in behavior of people in the
work environment, processes, possibilities to improve and background
information for optimization.
Result of the
analysis is a report on facts regarding occupation, activities and floor
plan, including possibilities to optimize layout and use of the office. If
required, an advise on possibilities for implementation of another
(innovative) workplace concept could be part of the final report as well.
