PROBLEMS TARGETED

Creating a work environment which takes into account the needs of all employees and customers is increasingly a challenge for the management of companies: people are getting older and have to work longer. Medical conditions and disabilities occur frequently.

PROJECT

easy entrance develops workable, realistic and cost-efficient solutions for companies and organisations. As a business consultancy and technical architecture company, easy entrance offers services for the entire process from conception through planning to implementation.

CURRENT SITUATION & OUTLOOK

Sound, light, colour and interior design all support the wellbeing of employees and customers. Bespoke acoustic solutions complement the creation of accessible work places. In cooperation with its customers, easy entrance has undertaken various projects to improve accessibility, e.g.:

– Design of a production hall for a large car company
– Optimisation of more than 60 (social) counselling locations
– Training of key employees of a municipal administration
– Advising banks in improving their service zones
– Training of labour inspectors
In 2014 it is planned to incorporate accessibility better into existing management processes and to improve standards.
