Purpose-built New Offices
A few years ago, German industrial group Evonik decided to move its IT location from Frankfurt to the Fraunhofer Science Park in Hanau, complete with purpose-built new offices. The result is a free-standing four-storey U-shaped building for around 300 IT employees. It features state-of-the-art technical equipment along with generously designed work and communication areas as well as plenty of greenery. The focus is on enabling effortless exchange between colleagues in a pleasing and inspiring environment.
Enabling Agile Working
The whole building is designed to help implement the concept of agile working which is about bringing people, processes and technology together to find the most effective way of carrying out a particular task: It is working within guidelines of the task but without boundaries of how you achieve it. This way, employees become empowered, innovative and more productive.
