Flexible Workplace is a program that adopts a new approach to space use. As work is evolving, the workplace must change to better support the modern workforce. The Flexible Workplace project will bring the office space up-to-date and in line with how staff is utilizing it. Following the success of pilot program comprising three floors, Flexible Workplace implementation in the Secretariat Building has begun in 2016. With the target of converting 18 floors in the Secretariat building by 2019, the project will gain additional 625 capacity in the main UNHQ complex. By having a variety of workspaces to meet a broad range of needs, staff productivity and satisfaction are expected to improve. Implementing a Flexible Workplace will allow the organization to fully utilize the available workspace. Staff will have access to a wide range of workspace to choose from with tools and technology to enable this flexibility. Flexible Workplace will make it easier to connect and communicate with other colleagues. Hierarchy will feel flatter and different level of colleagues will be more reachable.
