Companies looking for new modern office workstations for their employees should take several factors into consideration before making their decisions. Their workers will spend most, if not all their time, in those workstations, so they have to be comfortable. Employees need to be able to function easily, carrying out their job duties, communicating with each other and their customers and finally, storing their work materials. The new workstations should also be attractive as well as functional. Finally, they shouldn’t break the company’s budget.
Functions the Workstations Should Serve
Workstations are built to be easily broken down, moved and reassembled in another spot. Companies don’t stay the same year after year and this is best seen in their work forces. Employee numbers go up and down, meaning that offices built to accommodate every employee during an economic upswing will sit empty during a recession. Thus, workstations are one of the best ways a business can expand and contract without losing hundreds of thousands of dollars.
A four-walled office built for one or two employees has only the square footage assigned to it. Once all available floor and storage space have been occupied, the people assigned to that office will have to store their papers and office supplies in a space that may not be convenient to their office. Some mobile workstations can be configured to stack storage space over the desk space. This stackable storage space is near enough to the desk area that employees can easily get the items they need.
Mobile workstations are built to give their occupants privacy, yet allow them to communicate with their coworkers when they need to do so. Depending on how high the walls between individual workstations are, employees can make phone calls without disturbing fellow workers.
Most Desirable Workstation Features and Styles
“Here’s your work cubicle.” These words may inspire dread in a new employee. Cubicles have, for some, a well-earned reputation for being ugly, dull or plain. Companies wanted to cram as many people as they could into these unimaginative cubicles so they could save money.
No more! Today’s modern office workstations offer looks easy on the eyes. In addition, many cubicles being constructed today are built with ergonomic principles in mind.
Fabric and tile panels enable the company to create a workstation with its own unique look. Manufacturers want their product to be attractive so companies will buy them.
Customizability is another feature that companies should keep in mind. Not every employee is the same height or weight. Their job functions aren’t the same, either, meaning that companies need to request that the workstations they order be customizable to each employee.
Discussion of Cost
Different manufacturers will price their workstations differently. Depending on the needs of the company placing an order, as well as its budget, it can choose workstations in one of three budget categories.
These are the economy workstation, which offers features the company needs while keeping the production costs down. Next, the midrange workstations offer a few more options to the company, allowing it to order contemporary, traditional or classic looks. Finally, the high-end workstations feature added details and styling.
