Chapter 2. Daily Routine > Your Workstation

Your Workstation

The location and conditions of where you do your day-to-day work can be critical to how effectively you perform. Look first at how your workstation is placed physically within the entire office setup. Is there a reason that your desk is where it is? Analyze the traffic patterns around and through your workspace. Do coworkers have to pass through it to get from one operation to another? Study your own work patterns. How often do you go back and forth to the filing cabinets each day? How far away from your desk are they? Do other workers share these files? Is there a more efficient way to organize the office?

You may find it helpful to draw a sketch of your office and try out alternative arrangements on paper before you make suggestions to your employer. Each proposed change must consider two questions: 1.) Will you work more effectively in a different office layout? 2.) Will your proposed changes affect another worker's effectiveness?
