The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) moved from Zoetermeer to The Hague. WPA helped them make the most effective use of their new space.

A new way of working

What is the challenge for the ministry of education for using wpa?

The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) has moved from Zoetermeer to The Hague (De Hoftoren) on the 1st of October 2003. Mid 2013, OCW started the preparations to replace the furniture and carpet that has now been written off. And they want to make the housing concept contemporary and future-proof.

What is the reason for ocw to use wpa?

OCW wants to gain insight into its own work processes together with the employees in order to adapt the new housing concept.

In what way has wpa contributed to the result?

Due to the quality of the questionnaire and the high response rate of the participants (66%), the results of the survey were very useful for the further elaboration of the concept.

What information of the wpa was the most valuable for you?

The fact that the results are useful for linking to the workplace types which are used in the central government (Physical Work Environment State) makes sure that the OCW has a well-founded story for the internal organization. This applies to both decision-makers and all employees.

What would ocw like to measure, analyze or solve with wpa in the future?

The OCW would like to easily calculate growth and reduction with the help of the WPA tool.

The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science works to create a smart, skilled and creative environment in the Netherlands. Its mission is to ensure that everyone gets a good education and is prepared for responsibility and independence. The Ministry also wants people to enjoy the arts, and aims to create the right conditions for teachers, artists and researchers to do their work.
