How does your space drive productivity, collaboration and connectivity?
The layout of our workspace provides for the greatest degree of continuous learning because each team member has the space to collaborate with other team members or work independently of others. The space also allows for great teamwork. The space provides the opportunity for individuals to carry on discussions without disrupting co-workers but yet is intimate enough to have the ability to pull others into the discussions as they occur and the need arises. This space most definitely adds to the collaboration and connectivity of the individuals working there but also maximizes productivity because efforts are not duplicated.
What is the one thing that is unforgettable when someone walks through your space?
The one unforgettable feature in our facility is the vision of everyone working from different heights, from different areas of the workstations and the conversations that are occurring at the “Round Tables”. Sometimes you even see two “Round Tables” rolled into one space for greater collaboration.
How does your space tell your company’s story and reflect its brand?
Golars took an old chain restaurant that had been closed and locked up for years, had the space redesigned, renovated, reengineered and brought back to life. Golars “remediated” the facility and “engineered” it to bring in new life and new purpose - the same way we do the for the soil, groundwater and air.
How does your space engage your employee base?
The space allows for open communication, the ability for learning and sharing to occur at any time and in any setting, and the ability to be comfortable while working. The colors in our facility are signification not only because they are the colors in our logo, but because they have a very calming and soothing effect on the employees and they relate to the colors in the environment. The space is much larger and much more modern than our previous space and no one feels cramped or jammed in. The employees have been provided a spacious, ergonomic and non-threatening work area that allows for discussions to occur, work to be generated and learning and sharing to be encountered at every turn.
