Nestle Undergoes Transformation to Accommodate the Mobile Employee
Half the Square Footage, Double the Productivity
- Relocation of the mailroom from the ground floor
- Company test kitchen, for product tasting, testing, and soliciting feedback
- Creating a company store, where products are offered to staff at a discounted price
Connect Resource Managers and Planners Inc. provided space plans and designs for this new concept workspace that were aligned with Nestle’s core values and brand standards.
Designs were developed specifically for a food and beverage company; facilities, work flows, type of employees/work performed, etc. This resulted in a fit-for-purpose workspace design and implementation.
Meeting Unique Furniture and Technology Requirements
Each staff member received an assigned locker where they could store personal and work items.
Technology was a critical design factor, ensuring all employees were connected wherever they were physically situated at any given time. Laptops could easily be connected to monitors and other resources at each workstation.
Building Brand Presence and Creating the Plan
Using smart graphic design, Connect incorporated wayfinding and signage throughout the office to make the space welcoming for employees and guests alike.
Making the Vision a Reality
