Swisscom has established a centre for highly specialised ICT developers in Rotterdam. The offices are on the eighteenth floor of the imposing World Trade Center in the heart of the city. The Rotterdam ICT developer centre aims to attract highly qualified young talent from all round the world. Standing/sitting workstations by Lista Office LO are making an important contribution to the health and efficiency of the ICT experts.
For the developers, 76 ergonomic workstations have been set up in “Team Zones” on three “Working Floors”. The freely adjustable standing desks supplied by Lista Office LO offer superb working comfort and freedom to move. Stefania Rosati is enthusiastic about the benefits: “They help promote employee health and boost efficiency. The attractive desk design is another efficiency bonus: our staff love their appealing workplaces. And people who are happy in their work environment automatically get more done.” Along with the sitting/standing desks, Lista Office LO also supplied four elegant conference tables that immediately give a lift to the atmosphere at meetings, as well as fostering team creativity and innovative spirit. The team zones segue seamlessly into the “Common Areas”, where people can scribble freely on all the walls or work peacefully by a window. The Working Floors are completed with a comfortable entrance hall dotted with plants and sofas and equipped with a kitchenette, where the developers can relax during short breaks.
For more extended socialisation, they can move to the two “Social Floors”. Here, the ICT experts have the use of a kitchen over 10m long to cook, eat, and relax with a drink after work. Stefania Rosati is delighted: “Our kitchen is a meeting point for international cultures.” Next to the big kitchen, the staff have access to an extensive workshop area, which can be flexibly reorganised to meet immediate needs thanks to “Hackable Furniture”. Another popular space is the Game Zone, which boasts a 6m2 video wall and a virtual aquarium. Last but not least, the Social Floors are rounded off by a laboratory housing the servers and ICT support for the developers.
Lista Office LO has helped equip a diverse office world for the next generation of employees: flexible workstations and elegant conference tables help boost healthy and efficient working and promote a good work-life balance.
