Work culture: a concept that not everyone’s aware of yet. But it’s about to get much bigger. Why? The workplace is undergoing rapid changes.
We can’t really predict exactly what this change will look like. But we can pick up on tendencies and identify the essence of our work culture, as well as technical developments and trends.
Work culture is defined by a number of factors. These include the way people communicate and perform tasks, management style, and technical emphasis – to name but a few. All this characterises the way we behave with each other, the work culture within the company.
With knowledge of this culture, it’s possible to design working environments specifically for that company so that they are ideal for achieving potential over the long term. And good-quality, requirement-specific work environments are the best basis for corporate achievement and successful employer branding.
König + Neurath is committed to this goal: we work together with companies to identify the characteristic features of their work culture in order to develop the best solutions for furniture, room systems and a new sense of space.
The Karben-based company has been following and understanding the changes within Germany’s office industry since its inception in 1925.
Whereas in the early days the focus was still on individual products for the classic workstation, nowadays comprehensive support for integrated development processes is of course a key part of the service – and this is implemented in cooperation with strong dealer partnerships.
(Carl-Christoph Held the Chairman of the Board of Management at König + Neurath AG)
König + Neurath as a business on the one hand, the world of work as the realm of society on the other - two mirrored sets of numbers which stand alone and yet also correspond.
Admittedly, numbers are not the only thing that defines a business and describes a society. And yet they speak for themselves: quality “made in Germany”, international operations and reliability for employees on the K+N side. Expectations, habits and challenges on the side of the world of work.
Fascinating facts on both sides which invite comparison and interpretation.
