  • UVIT is a group of several insurance companies that recently moved into a new office space in Arnhem, Netherlands.  what makes this office unique is that instead of keeping traditional workstations where employees are assigned to a specific area, each employee is able to work throughout the office on any of the open workstations.

    Flexible workstations are becoming more popular with a much more mobile workforce as well as with the dwindling need for an area with your “stuff”. Normally, an employee would have files, paperwork, and business contacts, but now, with everything on the computers, there is less and less need.  In order to accommodate their workforce, all 1250 of them, UVIT has many open workstations as well as meeting areas where people can freely work or discuss in groups.

    Several of the interesting features are the file system that uses movable file cabinets on a track, the fun bathroom symbols, and the colorful decor throughout the office.  Normally I would be imagining what these offices might look like once people have begun working, but it is common for companies that have adopted open workstations to have a clean desk policy to keep clutter from collecting around the work environment.
