MOL Slovenija’s Goals
A different kind of open space
Kragelj and MOL’s leaders were listening to employees’ thoughts about their future workplace. Moving to an open-plan office was a common reservation since people were under the impression that open space must be noisy and chaotic.
The actual design addressed every concern, and MOL Slovenia’s new home looks nothing like the stereotypical, hectic open office. The workplace is clearly organized and transparent while providing ample privacy. The workstation areas are very quiet, and employees can also choose from a wide variety of individual and team settings, best suited to the task at hand. As they explore the workplace, they find a series of welcoming and unique spaces; no two rooms are the same.
Smart ways of working
The heart of each floor – with informal work lounges, tall tables and bar stools – functions as a multi-purpose square where spontaneous interactions are bound to happen. And the adjacent open stairs connect the three floors seamlessly.
The majority of shared spaces, including meeting, collaboration and social areas, are located along the central spine of the building, within easy access of all employees.
Teams are accommodated in intimately and acoustically designed open areas – ‘home zones’ – where workstations are organized around the perimeter, allowing people to enjoy daylight and views, supporting cooperation and team cohesion. Managers and department heads have private offices.
This arrangement also helps minimize distractions by separating noisy activities from quiet work. However, unlike the previous office, this dynamic environment is designed to bring different parts of the organization together rather than separate them.
Creating a positive experience
The new environment enhances health and wellbeing in multiple ways. Each employee has a dedicated, ergonomically sound workstation.
The lighting provides great visual comfort, and the acoustics of the office are excellent due to the generous use of sound-absorbing surfaces.
