Executive office furniture is designed to support the roles of key decision makers whose leadership determines the direction of the company. In addition to making difficult decisions on an almost a daily basis, managers must monitor the processes that drive the business forward. They must work with a variety of personality types, and they must remain objective at all times. Each manager needs a workspace that fully supports these responsibilities and enables him or her to accurately complete tasks on time. In such an environment, custom office furniture is always a better option as long as the price is reasonable and affordable.
Fortunately, Cubiture can not only beat the prices of competing custom furniture makers, we can also beat retail prices as well. We own our own factory and fleet of trucks. With thousands of materials that we can use in furniture construction, it is very easy for us to scale costs on desks, credenzas, filing cabinets, tables, and hutches. Jerry’s advanced knowledge of space planning enables him to design ergonomic workflow solutions that help focus the mind and alleviate stress.
- Work surfaces should place everything the manager needs within arm’s reach.
Keeping work materials within this “reach envelope” is a fundamental of ergonomic office furniture design. It vastly reduces stress on the arms, upper back, and neck by eliminating the need to constantly lean or bend over the desk to retrieve various items. Decision makers can work on tasks with fewer interruptions–and fewer frustrations–when seated at desks that put everything at their fingertips.The best way to place more items within reach is to build desks that wrap around the body on at least one side. This design strategy has the added benefit of saving floor space for additional seating, conference, and storage options that managers often require in their personal offices.
- The manager’s level of privacy depends on the size of his or her team.
A large team can be monitored by a group of mid-level managers who work on the floor with the staff. The chief manager of the team can work in a completely private office, separated from the team, in order to better focus on reports and other duties related to decision making. By contrast, a smaller team may need direct leadership by example, so the manager’s work area may need to be more accessible so staff can receive guidance as needed.Desk-mounted and floor-mounted office panels are an ideal way to control accessibility. These panels can be made from fine wood veneer or frosted glass to match interior decor. They can be positioned anywhere on a desk, small conference table, or even in a particular section of the room. This creates a space where the manager can interface with subordinates and colleagues and/or keep a portion of her or his work area off completely private.
- Executive office furniture should look appear more sophisticated than other workstations in the office.
Such a look establishes respect and creates an atmosphere of objectivity. When workers enter an executive office for a conference or a meeting, they immediately sense a change in atmosphere that reinforces the manager’s authority. Such an environment helps minimize debate and keep meetings more focused. It also establishes the proper level of tension needed for occasional disciplinary action.You do not have to spend an arm and a leg on materials to have executive office furniture that looks nice.With so many materials at our disposal, Jerry can have the team construct an affordable desking system that looks as good as it performs.
- More than anything, executive office furniture must support an exceptional level of organization.
The most trusted and respected leaders are those who are perceived as being highly capable individuals. A messy desk, or a disorganized filing system, or a cluttered work area makes a manager look out of control. This can cause others to lose confidence in their manager, which in turn can lead to a loss of respect.Jerry’s expertise in high-density filing and storage systems enables him to integrate highly efficient filing and storage cabinets directly into executive office furniture systems. These units can be constructed as part of a desk, stand-alone cabinets, or hutches that sit on top of a desking system. The key is to utilize the vertical cube in the room in order to as much leave floor space as possible free for vital processes. Jerry’s free space planning service can provide a visual reference that will function as both a design and procurement guide for furniture installation.
