Orgatec 2018: ophelis – Everything in motion
The working environment is currently facing major challenges that companies and organisations must tackle head on. The drivers of this change (digitization, demographic change, employer branding, pressure to innovate, etc.) are well known and frequent topics of discussion. Meanwhile, the consequences have reached the design of modern working environments.
Providing suitable work environments
Companies that are intensively tackling these changes follow expert advice and redesign their office environments. Birgit Gebhardt, Trendexpert confronts these changes head on, saying: “The knowledge worker requires different places to work well, depending on their current job and individual mood. Companies should pay attention to this when approaching the design of their working environment.” Today’s office landscape should therefore feature zones for concentrated independent work, places of communication, meeting places for informal communication, project work, meetings and retreat. It is also a matter of creating learning environments that make organisations more innovative, creative and faster, says Birgit Gebhardt.
Agility – for companies and employees
In the face of ever-increasing change and the high pressure of innovation, agility is a prerequisite for future corporate success. Agile companies bring people together and empower them to work on projects and search for solutions collaboratively, independently and quickly. Classical project management is increasingly being complemented by agile methods, such as scrum or Design Thinking; not only is this happening in IT development, but also in other business areas. This requires tools and spaces that precisely support this kind of project work and new mobility.
