Local council to move offices to improve productivity

By on January 25, 2007 in Office Supplies

Aylesbury Vale District Council has confirmed that its staff are to move into new office space in an effort to cut costs and improve productivity.

A meeting of the council earlier this week gave the go-ahead for staff to move into new purpose-built offices elsewhere in Aylesbury.

The move will allow employees to work in an open-plan, modern and flexible environment and will allow them to make better use of office furniture and office equipment to carry out their work.

According to the council, workers will have access to modern office equipment that they currently do not have, helping to improve productivity as well as bettering the service for taxpayers.

Council leader John Cartwright told the Bucks Herald: "Moving to new offices will mean significant savings for our residents, whilst ensuring that our customer service centre continues to be located in the town centre."

Research by the British Council for Offices (BCO) has found that moving or improving offices can improve productivity by as much as 25 per cent and, in turn, increase profitability by opening up communications and the flow of ideas between employees.

Repositioning office furniture or providing modern-day office equipment can all play a major part in improving the effectiveness of staff, the BCO claims.

At Paperstone you can find all the modern-day office equipment you need.
