The office is changing. Although we are still a long way away from the paperless office, increasing digitalisation has meant paper use in our offices is decreasing. Workplaces are becoming flexible and many are introducing clean desk policies. As a result, storage requirements in a modern office are changing, too . One solution is the office hub, a fully customisable meeting place and storage area that serves the needs of a flexible modern office worker.
Paper in an office
Are your employees using less paper? In the design of modern offices, storage space can vary from a few centimeters to several metres per employee. This is dependent upon the sector and the company. Many people still use paper on a daily basis. With a clean desk policy these papers require storage at the end of the working day.
At departmental level, every company has a store of manuals, study books and shared files. These documents require a central location for storage, where they are available to all members of staff in the department.
Personal belongings in an office
Think of the personal items you bring into work: jacket, laptop, bike helmet, gym kit, wallet or purse, desk accessories. In a flexible office, an office hub provides a central place for the storage of personal belongings. For example, our mobile office cabinet can be custom fitted with lockers and hanging rails for clothing and valuables.
