Everybody is different, which is why we create inclusive workplace solutions that accommodate and cater for as many people as possible, removing barriers and enabling people to work confidently, comfortably, and efficiently. Our products can meet the needs of those suffering from both physical and mental difficulties, ranging from wheelchair accessible booths to personal workspaces for those with neurodivergent conditions.
Neurodiversity describes the idea that people experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways; there is no one “right” way of thinking, learning, and behaving, and differences are not viewed as deficits. Every human has a unique nervous system with a unique combination of abilities and needs.
Neurodiverse people tend to be over or under-stimulated by their working environment. The impact of lights, smells, noise, and temperature is often understated, making seemingly harmless elements of the office like lighting a larger issue.
Approximately 20% of the population is what is known as neurodivergent, totalling 13.5 million people in the UK, 150 million in Europe, and 1.6 billion globally. Whilst it’s important to cater to this portion of the population, it’s also crucial to meet the needs of individuals with other characteristics.
Alongside private booths, seating, and individual workplaces, we create collaborative products that allow the extroverts amongst us to flourish. They thrive on spontaneity and fast-paced collaboration, largely based on group interactions. Extraverts are required within teams to ensure that bold ideas are carried forwards at pace and ensure their delivery at the end.
As well as designing for those with cognitive difficulties, it’s equally crucial to factor in people suffering with some level of physical disability. Alongside our ranges of products designed for the neurodivergent workplace, we’ve also modified and evolved existing ranges to support the needs of those suffering with physical difficulties.
As part of our commitment to creating workplaces for all, we’ve evolved and modified existing ranges to become DDA compliant, and cater to the needs of people who require increased access.
