Most of us spend almost 70% of our normal week at work so naturally it is important that we have a good environment to work in. At Asystec we wanted to make sure that when staff come to work each day, they enter a welcoming and productive environment.
Over the past few months we have taken on the process of transforming our Limerick and Dublin offices into state-of-the-art work environments – preparing for the future of work by making our workplace into more than just an office.
Tara Charnley, HR Manager (And unofficial in-house interior designer) was tasked with taking the current office spaces and transforming them to create them a nicer place to work and to also meet the needs of the growing company.
“Our working environment has a significant effect on our mood, work performance and productivity.” Tara explained “Asystec is a people focused organisation and we know that our best asset is our employees. Their wellbeing, job satisfaction and happiness is paramount.”
As a result of the refurbishment and reconfiguring the main office layout, the company created a further 20 desk pods, as well as an additional 4 meeting rooms, 2 in each office, to encourage and promote in-house collaboration.
“We hired an additional 18 people over the last 12 months” Tara continued. “With this refurb not only did we want to create a nicer and more productive workspace for current employees, we also needed to futureproof the office space – we are growing constantly! We now have more desks and a happier workforce – it’s a win-win”
All desks now have 2 x Dell 24” monitors, laptop docking, wireless keyboards & mice and USB charging stations to help provide a clean sleek look to the desk spaces.
All chairs were replaced with Humanscale Liberty Chairs, these are engineered to automatically adjust to whoever sits in it, instantly accommodating each user. With no manual adjustments and a weight-sensitive recline, the user can move easily and without restrictions.
Next on the agenda for refurbishment will be a lounge room and enhanced canteen area in both offices. This next phase is scheduled to commence in Autumn 2019.
“While our Limerick and Dublin offices were functioning perfectly they didn’t inspire creatively, innovation and collaboration”, explained Les Byrne, Asystec Managing Director. “The offices are now a brighter, welcoming, and more contemporary space, and we are confident that the company will be rewarded with a happier and more industrious workforce”.
