BENE OFFICE GUIDE - THE AGE OF FLEXIBILITY.
EVOLUTION AT WORK is Bene`s office guide, which reflects on new trends and developments, and takes them further. It is intended as a handbook to inspire new working environments and enable companies to find their own path towards a culture of collaboration.
EFFICIENCY AT EVERY LEVEL
Concentration & Reflection
Different departments have different requirements. Each area of expertise will need its own level of interaction, concentration and privacy. In the same way, some departments will need more shelving or storage room than others. It has been shown that inhouse processes improve considerably when each department has a tailormade working environment.
IDEAS GROW, WHEN THEY ARE SHARED
Collaboration & Interaction
To find shared solutions, you need to offer spaces that work with your group dynamics and motivated teams. That means people can collaborate in workshops, meet with colleagues for networking beyond their own departments, or even reflect on their last meeting when in the kitchen.
YOUR CONFERENCE COMPANY’S FACE
Communication & Image
The more professional and authentic your corporate image, the faster confidence in your company will grow. The atmosphere in the reception or hospitality areas, at discreet meetings in managerial offices, or presentations in the conference room leaves a vital impression on clients, partners and staff.
A - Concentration & Reflection
1- TEAM LEADERSHIP.
Leadership requires closeness to the team as well as discretion when dealing with individuals. A workspace that offers privacy, but is also directly integrated into the team area, makes both possible.
2- INDEPENDENT TASKS.
If you need to concentrate, you need quiet. Screened off workspaces enable you to achieve your aim without being disturbed.
3- COLLABORATIVE TASKS.
Teamwork spaces for 4–8 people. A nearby standing table or flipchart bring clarity to your work. Screened off to make sure that colleagues working nearby are not disturbed.
4- MIXED TASKS.
Workplace settings for both individual work and joint tasks. For teams that belong together, however different their tasks may be.
B - Collaboration & Interaction
1- OPEN COLLABORATION.
Settings with an open design and few individual spaces. Where groups of up to eight people can meet spontaneously. Usually not booked.
2- TOUCH DOWN.
Temporary workspaces with low to medium levels of privacy. Usually not booked.
3- QUIET AREA.
An enclosed quiet zone with temporary workplaces for individuals who want to focus 100% on their work. These zones have a code of conduct: no phones, skype calls or discussions. Individual workplaces are usually booked.
4- TIME OUT.
Open settings where you can relax during a break, often with drinks available. Not booked.
5- MEETING ROOM.
A closed room that allows for privacy and discretion. Best suited to arranged meetings between groups of people. Usually booked.

Separate spaces for developing ideas. This spatial concept supports group dynamics with flexible furnishing as well as analogue and digital tools, such as the IDEA WALL. Usually booked.
7- BUSINESS BOX.
A closed room for privacy and discretion. Perfect for individuals who want to focus 100% on the task in hand. Usually booked.
