Activity Based Working Environments are made to work
Taking the concept of hot desking further, Activity-Based Working is the next generation of working. It reshapes the traditional office model to create an energised, socially connected environment consisting not only of no assigned desks, but also ‘hubs’ for smaller groups and individuals, collaborative areas for meetings and brainstorming and sections tailored to different activities.
With the potential to create productivity and efficiency improvements, it’s a concept that has been embraced by some of the largest companies across the globe. Efficiencies will develop, however, only if employees are given the right tools and have the right behaviours put in place to support it.
PEPworldwide allows you to support your people throughout the change to a new, sustainable way of working: activity based working environments or "hot desking".
PEPworldwide assists the move to an Activity-Based Working environment model in a number of ways:
- Building a new team culture and agreements to foster harmonious working
- Increasing productivity and allowing employees to save time, which can then be used on key, high-priority activities
- Helping staff feel valued by involving them, proactively, in the change process
- Establishing and agreeing on workflow processes and behaviours for the new working environment
- Reducing distractions and interruptions
- Maximising the use of mobile tools and technology (mobile working environments).
- Assisting the implementation of flexible working practices quickly and efficiently
- Supporting the move towards a paperless environment
- Utilising PEP principles for storage and easy retrieval of information
- Creating an environment that encourages collaboration.
Before the physical office changes, PEPworldwide consultants assist organisations to set up effective workflows and a new way of working, which involves clearing out anything unnecessary and assisting the move towards a new, changed environment. To complement this transition, PEPworldwide utilises best practice principles for working with electronic tools, as well as optimising networked storage and filing practices and the implementation of practical email efficiencies.
PEPworldwide also supports the transition to Activity-Based Working environments by fostering the behavioural changes that make this new working style sustainable. It’s a matter of encouraging a new team culture to emerge and implementing agreements between staff that create a harmonious working environment.
Through supporting staff to achieve optimum efficiencies with a new way of working, people will be doing the right things, in less time and with less effort. The new way of working will be adopted in a sustainable way and productivity improvements will be easily measured and evaluated. PEPworldwide have helped countless companies achieve improvements of up to 30%, meaning that on average, your staff will gain two hours, per person, per day to use for high-priority activities.

"I liked the hands on approach during the PEP Sessions. We got to apply the learnings immediately while it was still fresh in our minds. Gaining feedback from our PEP Coach was really good, very personalised. I enjoyed this training more than any other training programs I have done in the past. I would recommend this to all employees within Canon."
