Office benching workstations or open concept office furniture has become a hot trend in office space design. If you are considering this concept for your office, there are many factors to consider. In this blog, we look at the pros of office benching workstations and how this design can enhance your office space as well as the productivity of your employees.
What Are The Benefits Of Office Benching Workstations?
Better collaboration. When implementing office benching workstations in your office this design gives you the ability to group your employees together, which is great for teams such as engineering and creative teams such as marketing departments where employees thrive off being able to bounce off ideas in a open setting. The open benching workstation concept allows for these employees to have the ability to build strong bonds without cubicles walls getting the way of their conversations. Better communication between employees means better productivity. Anytime you can break open up communication in your office space, you know that can spark that genius within your employees. This design concept gives you that flexibility to create better team building within your organization without having to invest in other activities as well.
Space Savers. If you do not have a lot of space to work with in your current office design, open benching might be the right choice for your design. Cubicles can be a physical barriers between employees, and in addition they also take up physical space in your office. Most companies know that space is a premium.. With the office bench workstation designs you design the workstations to fit more of your employees within a space as well versus traditional cubicles where you might be able to fit in one employee, giving a less flexibility. Another benefit of office workstation benching is that it is budget friendly. The more employees you can fit in with office workstations, the bigger the cost savings.
Increased flexibility. Most office workstation bench designs are modular, which means that they can be configured and re-configured. These workstations grows with your company. You can also change cubes, however, there is a larger costs and downtime associated with reconfiguration on cubicles to factor into that design. The open benching workstations can be more flexible – not only can you expand systems to accommodate more employees as your company grows, but they can be shifted on the floor most of the time very quickly.
In this post, we have highlighted the Mayline Even Collection. The Mayline Even Collection gives you the ability to seat one, two, three or as many as four people at a single workstation. Multiple workstations can be used together in a variety of configurations to give you the right work surface space your office needs within a single area. This collection expands with your company’s needs. We also have the Even collection from Mayline on display at our Frederick, Md showroom for you to see in person.
