While the project was initiated as a move to a new headquarters building, it also represented a complete transformation of Banque Populaire’s working environment. The transition to a more flexible office model required the collaboration of all the company’s departments to select ergonomic equipment capable of adapting to all employees. A working group made up of employees, ergonomists, managers and leadership was established to set expectations and trial products including desks, work chairs, and monitor mounts.
In the monitor mount category, the working group tested various solutions for ease of movement, simplicity and speed of installation, and stability. The monitor mounts had to be adaptable enough to adjust to the wide variety of workstations the company was planning to deploy for the new space, including solo bench type workstations, fixed-height and adjustable desks, canopy type workstations, and manager-level spaces. As a result, Ergotron TRACE™ Single and Dual Monitor Mounts were selected to provide a truly ergonomic environment that could adapt to the individual worker’s needs for all 700 workstations.
