ABSTRACT
The article discusses the use of flat panel computer displays at insurance broker Willis Group in London, England. In 2002, Willis decided to create a new cutting-edge open working environment to reflect the company's commitment to information technology and productivity improvement. Installation of additional wiring both for power and air conditioning posed a problem as Willis were restricted by Grade II building regulations from altering the walls or floors at the headquarters of the company. As part of the solution Phil Dibbin, Willis' manager for information services, investigated the option for introducing Sharp flat panel liquid crystal display (LCD) screens and a new desk/working station configuration to improve office ergonomics and maximise use of the available space. It was found that LCD required 60% less space compared to the usual computer displays. LCD could be wall mounted, thus with the personal computer kept under the desk the only items on the work surface are the keyboard and mouse. Screen flickers associated with usual computer displays are eliminated and employees would suffer less eye strain or headaches and the positioning of the screens would encourage users to assume a position that is ergonomically friendly.
