Companies like Google and Facebook are famous for implementing more open office environments in which employees are given a great deal of freedom to roam about the premises. This is thought of as a way of encouraging creativity, teamwork and a relaxed atmosphere. It’s hard to argue with the results, as these and other companies with similar offices have been leading the information technology revolution and making our lives better as a result.
Not surprisingly, many new companies that are hoping to encourage a collaborative work space are emulating these major Silicon Valley corporations. If you’re the owner of an Atlanta technology startup, and you’re pursuing a similar atmosphere for your office, you may not think a security and access control system is conducive to this kind of environment. After all, you don’t want your employees to feel trapped inside, and but you also don’t want to seem exclusive.
However, you will still be able to create a fun, productive office space for your workers while also ensuring both their safety and that of the company’s property and data. A modern access control system allows you to integrate a key card entry system into your current office space that feels much less restrictive to employees but still keeps out the intruders and solicitors that you want to prevent from disturbing you. When hiring new employees, it makes the process of issuing keys and access permissions easy, as you’ll no longer have to keep track of keys that can easily be duplicated.
Having been a leading Atlanta alarm company since 1995, we’ve witnessed a great deal of evolution in the way companies build office culture, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the need for solid access control systems. Call us at (770) 645-0061 for more information.
