Creating better workspaces


This, the fourth guidance note in the series, focuses on the spatial element of workplace – the physical spaces where people work. It focuses on workspace because it’s the component of workplace that facilities managers (FMs) are likely to be most familiar with and have most influence over.

This guidance note explains why workspaces are important to individuals and organisations and explores the things that can lead to good or bad workspaces. It looks at different ways of viewing workspaces and debunks some of the common myths about workspace design.
