Provide Adequate Work Space For Your Intern

Facebooktwitterpinterestlinkedinmail

 

Where your intern performs their work can affect how well they perform. Many university internship contracts require companies to provide an ‘appropriate’ work space. What does that really mean? Does that mean they must have a place to hang family photos? Does it mean they should have a desk that they don’t have to share? It’s totally subjective. What is appropriate for one person may be totally unacceptable for another. Whether working in a private office, a cubicle, or a shared office space there are 5 things that I believe should be provided to every intern.

1. Clean area
2. Adequate desktop or writing space
3. Organization/storage
4. Office supplies
5. Technological connection

 

What is your idea of an appropriate work space?
