Who hasn’t been left out or the last person asked to join a:
- Grade school sports team
- Major office celebration
- Small family get together
- Large dinner party
- Local community organization
We want to belong, accepted as a member of the “in group”, exclusive club and office team.
There is one common factor in this “I want in” feeling and that is acceptance.
Kirsten Weir wrote an article focusing on this whole acceptance thing. Check it out.
Densification is the latest buzzword when talking about how office furniture is positioned and organized, it’s considered “a growth driven design, strategically positioned to accelerate the interaction and collaboration of projects and teams.”
Does this not remind you of the whole acceptance and fitting in thing from high school? Now there are people sitting 2 feet from you at the table desk. And you might ask yourself “who are they”?
Floor space, desks, chairs and file cabinets, now shared, has become the new norm. Everyone wants to feel in and accepted when near or next to another professional at the table.
So when your building manager talks about the new shared space (densification plan) rolling out in 2016, you will want to be aware of what this means to the dynamics of group acceptance. Your job may be to make this work with new limited space. This is when sharing of furniture, acceptance and being a member of the team is paramount.
Here is where we come in.
No we are not moving into your office but we do a service that makes office sharing easier and less stressful.
Geyen Group South keeps these actively used and shared chairs clean and fresh. We clean office chairs from top to wheels on a regular basis, scheduled with the office or facilities manager. Depending on the number of times the chair is sat on, determines the cleaning frequency.
One size does not fit all here, its more like, type of chair + # of people sharing chair + # of times chairs is sat on = # cleaning frequency.
We do things differently. Always asking why and when and what and how, flexible in making changes and working with clients on their calendar and their comfort level of clean.
