Presentation of the ORGATEC special report “Effective Office and Working Environments”
Discussions about office design and flexible working hours and work locations are a daily occurrence in companies, institutions and agencies. New findings on these topics was revealed at the presentation of the ORGATEC special report “Effective Office and Working Environments”. The study was conducted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering (IAO/Fraunhofer-Institut für Arbeitswirtschaft und Organisation) on behalf of the designfunktion Group.
The study consulted more than 1,000 office and work environment experts as well as representatives from the architecture and property sectors who are dealing with the issue of “new working environments”. They gave their views on the quality of the overall design, quality of environmental features, degree of self-determination, learning culture, spatial representation of the corporate structure, and the quality of information and communications technologies in their organisation. Further exciting findings await you in the special analysis of very small companies and the issue of work locations.
The presentation was given by Stephanie Wackernagel, Fraunhofer IAO.
