Communication is key! The aim of this project was to promote social sustainability by improving the various levels of internal communication of EVVA, the Vienna manufacturer of locking systems. An employee workshop organized by the management consultants denkstatt analyzed current places of exchange. On the basis of the information gathered during the workshop, the designer and architect Eldine Heep then developed communication islands in various locations throughout the company premises. The aim of these interventions is to create more private space and natural surroundings within the company, in order to simplify direct communication and informal exchange and, on top of this, to strengthen the employees’ identification with their workplace. The project was accompanied by Andrea Trumler-Berneck, a business consultant from denkstatt, and supported at EVVA by Martin Van Berkum, Division Manager Production Engineering and Production Mechanics.
