Workspace of the Week: Shipping department

This week’s Workspace of the Week is My_OCD’s standing desk:

There are so many things I love about this office setup that I am downright giddy. I’ll start with the Macbook Pro mounted to be standing height, which is genius. Workers in this space are on their feet when they’re working. I’m assuming they use the computer to mark orders as received, filled, and shipped, so it makes sense for the computer to be located next to where they are working but in a way that is suitable for their workflow. Secondly, the mount brings the computer up off the table that is used for wrapping, so it won’t easily get damaged or lost in packing materials. A really terrific idea. Third, and what made my heart swoon, are the shelves and shelves of well labeled and stored supplies in the back right section of the office photograph. There is a place for everything, and everything is in its place. When an order comes in, the people who work here know exactly where to find the items to fill the order.

Thank you, My_OCD, you and Spencer Aircraft are doing things beautifully. We truly appreciate you sharing your images with us.

    I don’t have an office. I just use my handheld computer. My office is everywhere, but mostly at the park or beach. Rather than send a letter to a client, I send an email. There are many creative ways to go without an office and all the supplies.

    I work in a shipping department and this looks pretty much like my workspace…except it’s a desktop PC vs. Macbook. Organization is key when your shipping 100s of boxes in a day! Glad I am not using plywood as a counter top! Uggg…splinters!
