Anabas publishes white paper on understanding workers

Corporate Office specialist Anabas has published its first in a series of white papers, which will explore the evolution of agile working.

As the modern workplace continues to evolve, so does the way in which we approach our work. Gone are the days of amonoculture, now diverse employees demand a diverse environment and so it is vital thatFM’s are able to understand behaviour in order to guide effective FM delivery within the agile environment, says Anabas.

The free to download white paper; ‘What Type of Office Worker Are you?’ helps to rediscover what it means to be human in the workplace and takes you back to the beginning by focusing on understanding individual behaviours, work styles and how they influence interaction within the workplace itself.

It examines the importance of people in the workplace and discusses the work style formula of – Culture + Mobility + Temperament – demonstrating how this can guide behaviours. It also scientifically identifies four main types of worker based on brain chemistry; Pioneers, Guardians, Drivers and Integrators and how despite the differences, each is driven in the same way, by the environment.

On the White Paper Anabas, MD, Alistair Craig, said: “Agile is a hot topic in the industry and is one that will remain for many years to come. We felt it pertinent to look at a series of White Papers to understand its evolution and to address the contributing factors. This first paper really focuses on understanding people. FM is no longer just about the fabric of a building it is about the people within. By taking the time to understand workers within an agile environment and what makes them really tick, FM’s are becoming gardeners, rather than architects and instead of just managing a pre-designed space, they will be able to manage, nurture and cultivate the people and the place, to create a harmonious agile workspace.”
