My Day in an Activity Based Office
06/12/2014 - 14:02

There it goes again. My mouse has lost the batteries as well as its cover and is lying somewhat sorry looking at the bottom of the stairs. I am standing at the top of the stairs with the laptop, laptop cables, notebook and phone all piled up on one hand and a burning hot coffee cup on another. And I’m late from a meeting, again.

I have been working activity based for a year and a half now. It all started with a chat with our interior designers. I explained them what my typical day consists of, what works and what doesn’t. They told me I’m a typical “Connector”. This means I spend most of the working time at the office, mostly in different kinds of meetings. Some meetings are virtual, some one-to-one, sometimes they are workshops and sometimes traditional team meetings. My individual work ranges from writing reports requiring maximum concentration to relaxed e-mail reading. In other words, a “Connector” needs many different spaces for different kinds of work.

And that I have. And I love it. I prize the freedom of activity based working. I don’t need to sit next to the colleague who comments out loud on all the funny e-mails he gets but when I need cheering up, I can do so. I can hide in the library when needed or I can work in the cafeteria if I’m feeling social. It’s my choice.

The downside of my nomad working life has been the difficulty of carrying my office around with me. I can just about handle everything else but the hot coffee cup just doesn’t work. Luckily, I work in a company that specialises in solving the challenges of office work. One day, I purposefully sat next to our chief designer and explained my problem. Now I’m the proud owner of a bag specially designed for carrying my stuff from one meeting to the next. And my mouse is grateful for staying intact.
