Be Flexible – agile working is all about flexibility but it only works if all your colleagues are equally flexible and considerate to each other.
- Try to avoid “beach-towelling” a desk or work area if you are away for a period of time (e.g. in meetings all morning).
- Tidy your work area and put your files away after you have finished using a work space so others can use it.
- Don’t book rooms if your meeting could be done round a table in the breakout area or canteen.
- Make sure that if a meeting is no longer going ahead that you remove your reservation of the workspace so others can utilise it.
If everyone follows this simple etiquette there will always be plenty of work areas and rooms available when you need them.
