The Office Services or Mailroom space plan requires a careful consideration of mail routings in order to maximise efficiency. Planning the furniture and equipment in different ways can affect productivity significantly. Illustrated below are examples of ‘Bad Work Flow’ (left) where the mail and staff cross back and forth, to be compared against ‘Good Work Flow’ (right) where the mail flows smoothly and unobstructed through the mailroom from start to finish. In this example we are showing a large and regularly-proportioned room although many companies are unable to provide this consideration.
Take time to consider a simple equation by calculating time saved from good workflow and good ergonomics; two minutes saved every hour saves more than one week of total time every year. Appropriate furniture and a good layout can help to realise this equation, reduce costs, increase efficiency or productivity and maintain order in a safe and tidy environment.
