Yello is the new workplace concept for ABN AMRO’s head offices. Hospitality Group developed and implemented this new demand-driven workplace concept together with ABN AMRO. Yello promotes collaboration, knowledge sharing and innovation, and makes the working life of employees more fun and easier. Recently the first Yello Agile office floors were taken into use, comprising building blocks specifically designed to support Agile Working.

Comprehensive support by High Performance Teams

Yellow Agile is a combination of physical furnishing elements, IT resources, and modern services, resulting in a different organisation of the work environment and the way of working. The concept stimulates collaboration between different organisational units, especially working in various multidisciplinary compositions. Furthermore Yello Agile supports such themes as vitality, sustainability and employee wellbeing. Yello Agile offers team spots, each with their own scrum wall, to enable ‘sprint backlogs’ and ‘daily scrums’ and offers shared scrum event spaces for (virtual) brainstorm sessions. It also provides teams with a stage for visibly sharing knowledge and results and celebrating success.

Dynamic and quiet

Yello and Yello Agile literally make the environment more open and transparent. The absence of walls and use of lighter colours enhance a spatial experience. Thanks to clear zoning and logical routing, employees easily find the most suitable workplace for any activity. And with specific solutions such as team spots, scrum event rooms and a living room, Yello Agile offers scrum teams a dynamic environment while also offering spaces for working undisturbed and privately.

Guidance and involvement

Hospitality Group handled the complete Yello project management for ABN AMRO. We developed a blueprint, a style book for all physical, virtual and technological components of Yello Agile, a toolkit for in-house project teams and a development programme for management and staff. Over the next years Yello Agile will be rolled out further in ABN AMRO’s head offices.
