Unusual Philips office - with no fixed place of work
Office bum - so you can translate the playful new approach to the organization of the working space (workplace innovation) Philips company. As in six of their employees get to sit on the 420 chairs?
Previously, the concept of innovation in the workspace (WPI) has been successfully introduced in the Netherlands Philips offices, India, Norway, Singapore, Turkey, Sweden, Brazil and Portugal. The turn to the Russian branch. It would seem that in the photo is nothing unusual.
Press release about the opening of the new office will tell you that the WPI concept inspires people to search for new ideas and business solutions of the problems. Each employee can choose the workplace, depending on the plans for the day. The office is divided into areas for individual and joint work, leisure, meetings and conferences, and each of them has a unique design and lighting solutions.
Employees do not have a permanent job. The idea is that they take place or those that are free, if they come late, or those that are convenient to them.
There are several types of jobs at the office: openspeys where everyone is together, the room for one person, for those who want to work alone, peregovorki 4, 8, 10 and ten thematic recreation areas "Russia", "1950 "," Paris "," Nature "," Mountains "," Ocean "," Netherlands "," New York "," Rome "and" Vanguard "
Again, its field staff have not. They sit down on anyone, what they like. So it looks absolutely all the tables in the company: monitor, keyboard, mouse, charging a laptop (they're all the same manufacturer) and IP-phone. When you sit down and typing on it my code, internal extension worker's phone number is switched to the table.
- And if I like to sit by the window? Score a place, put a photo of his wife, elephant from India, shoes under the table leave?
- first we try, but we struggle with it. You can not come in and say "I've been sitting here stuck to my cup." Leaving the employee must leave the place completely empty.
All personal belongings are removed in personal lockers.
In addition, there are also lockers departments where hiding the documents necessary for the work to several employees.
- But, in fact, sometimes it is more convenient to work campaign? I want to sit together with all!
- With this simple, there are areas where you can sit down together and discuss something: peregovorki and coffee area. Everywhere vayfay not have to be tied a cord to the site.
accustom employees to the new rules began half a year, before moving to a new office. We explained the ideology of workplace innovation, introduced a login to the system on the phones. First, of course, we forget to register at the workplace.
The new rules take root very hard, but because of them kept confidential - the tables raked everything, no stickers with passwords of mail and documents, which can be seen random people does not remain.
But most importantly - 600 people work in the office, and in it only 420 jobs. Someone "in the fields", someone is sick or on vacation. But a certain number of hours per week must be carried out here to sit constantly at work is not necessary.
The working day begins at will with 7, 8, 9 or 10 o'clock in the morning. It is mandatory for the presence of the clock from 11 to 16, of course, if at this time do not have any meetings. In addition, each employee one day a week can work from home - access to the internal network of the company allows workers to organize web meetings.
Rooms for shoes. Each cell is placed on the 6 pairs.
Another rule - no meetings on Friday - in Phillips not schedule meetings on Friday, is the day when the rake everything that had accumulated and the time to think of the future achievements.
All the light in the office, of course, filipsovsky. Rooms are equipped with sensors, switches it off when there is no movement for 40 minutes. A special system adjusts artificial light to natural light, ie, the evening lights are lit more brightly than during the day. In addition, the optical system makes it so that no light does not shine into the eyes and it seems that they are turned off. The photo shows only one nearest lamp in the ceiling, as if the rest do not.
In every negotiation with a TV, working as a screen, thus resolved the problem with the projector.
In the negotiation, you can change the color, brightness, and the intensity of the light from yellow to blue in the operating room.
