Open for strong dialogue

Concept

Communication that’s three times as strong. UPC’s change project “come together” brought together 1,400 employees from three sites under a single roof. The zone-based concept at the new head office boosts team culture at all levels – and is highly efficient in terms of both space and costs.


The concept

A matching zone for every requirement: the workplace designed by Lista Office LO provides UPC employees with a variety of options for focused work, interactive team projects and relaxed meetings.

UPC’s change project “come together” brought together 1,400 employees from three sites to its new head office in Wallisellen. The move was a major logistical challenge for Switzerland’s market leader in the TV and broadband sector but above all it offered long-term strategic advantages with respect to both team dialogue and cost-efficiency.

The workplace designed by Lista Office LO comprises 1,100 workstations. This provides ideal coverage, since a combination of part-time work, external placements and other absences means that the employees are never all in the office at once. The concept also promotes mobility and communication in the company: depending what work is on their agenda, employees can choose between different types of work zone – classic workstations with sitting and standing tables, rooms for focused work and a variety of areas for meetings and spontaneous discussions.

The furnishings
