Wellbeing and Productivity
The wellbeing and productivity of your staff is one of the key metrics that affect the bottom line.
Part of the International Ergonomics Association definition of Ergonomics is to optimise wellbeing and system performance.
Our workplace design process investigates what parts of the design affects the subjective wellbeing of your staff/employees. We consider the physical, social and phycological elements of the system/design to ensure your design promotes wellbeing and productivity.
Our unique approach allows us to provide your organisation with a wellbeing score before and after the design phase. Cost benefit analysis is also available to make the business case if required.
Cost benefit analysis
Making the business case is sometimes the key to funding for a new workplace design.
Morgan Maxwell have the knowledge and skills to provide the cost benefit and economic analysis of any new workplace design.
Activity based agile working
Our Ergonomics and Human Factors research approach allows us to understand the needs and requirements of your employees/staff. Data collected from our research enables the design to cater for different kinds of work and wide range of human capabilities.
Our designs focus on flexible working environments. As your organisation and technology changes so should your workplace.
Collaboration and concentration (Images yes)
In recent years, there has been a focus on open plan offices with the main goal of promoting/facilitating collaboration.
If too much focus is placed on collaboration it can be at the expense of concentration. Employees who are unable to concentrate due to distractions can be vulnerable to increased presenteeism and reduced wellbeing.
By understanding human behavior, your workplace can support collaboration and concentration.
Ethnographic research approach (Images yes)
Ethnography is a research method used within the social sciences. Unlike traditional forms of market research that use specific questions, Ethnographic research aims to understand how your employees actually work, how they solve problems and how they work within their teams.
Data is collected by a combination of detailed interviews and observations. Our goal is to understand how your teams work across multiple channels, their behaviors, needs and goals.
