When looking for new or used furniture the office workstations are where most of your employees will be spending their time supporting your customers, taking care of customer support, making sales calls, customer service, and etc. So what are some important things to consider when considering purchasing new or used office workstation?
Size – Will there be multiple people working in the workstation, or just one? This can dictate the size and type of workstation that will be needed, whether it’s a traditional cubicle, l-shaped workstation or something completely different.
Privacy – Is half-height or full-height better suited to the workspace? If you have people making sales calls noise can be a big factor so it may be better to go with a workstation of which provides more privacy. If your business relies on collaboration than maybe it’s best to go with open concept workstations or half walls to give some privacy while still encouraging back and forth communication freely without technology.
Storage – This will depend on the situation of the workspace, if it’s a collaborative workspace than less storage might be needed versus an accounting department that is dealing with a constant paper trail. It’s best to do an analysis with your team and figure out how much storage is truly needed as this can be achieved either through the workstation or separate storage and filing units.
Style – It’s probably the first thing people look at and with good reason, pick a style that suits and blends the different personalities of the office but make sure to keep in mind the needs of the job when making your office workstation selections.
