Although the fixed workplace is still commonplace, especially in the UK, Germany and Belgium, almost half of the organizations in these countries also provide flexible workplaces. These are workplaces that any employee in an organization can use. The mobile workplace - a temporary workplace for employees on the go - is even somewhat more popular. In Belgium, 60% of the organizations offer mobile workplaces. In Germany, this is 56% and in the UK 46%. The Netherlands ranks at the top with 66% of the organizations providing flexible workplaces and no less than 80% supplying them with mobile workplaces. The use of home workplaces is on the rise but this workplace is less widespread. In the Netherlands, 37% of employers provide a home workplace, followed by Germany with 36% and the UK with 29%. Belgium leads the way with 43% of employees providing home workplaces. 

Workplace concepts

With the increase in flexible and mobile workplaces, it’s only natural that IT managers in the various countries mention the laptop as the most important tool for supporting flexible working. A laptop, however, is not really designed for comfortable efficient use throughout the entire workday. What it needs are the proper accessories. This is why BakkerElkhuizen has developed workplace concepts for fixed, flexible, mobile and home workplaces. After all, with the right accessories, employees can conduct their computer screen activities in an ergonomically responsible way wherever they are. Easily adjustable accessories such as monitor arms and document holders, for example, are indispensable for a flexible workplace, and an employee who is often on the move simply has to have alight portable notebook stand and compact keyboard.
