Actually, when is rush hour?
How People Signs facilitates rush hour in the workplace.


New York's Metropolitan Transit Authority recently reported its highest ridership in over half a century. At peak in 2014, New York's subways were moving 6 million people every business day, the most since just after World War II. Thanks to changing work habits, more people are traveling mid-day and late at night.  Read more from Fast Company on what that means about changing commuter profiles and maintenance schedules on the trains.   Read on to find out how People Signs can facilitate rush hour in the workplace. 

The goal of a People Signs wayfinding program is to help people move seamlessly through a facility or campus – whether coming into or leaving work. Well-placed signs follow a natural progression to the desired destination, eliminate confusion and roadblocks, and promote efficiently-directed use of space. 
People Signs collaborates with clients, architects, designers, contractors and stakeholders in planning a wayfinding sign project to determine:
The company culture, branding and environment,
How the facility or campus is used and by whom 
Worker, vendor and visitor traffic patterns 
Business hours and peak activity
Entry/exit access and interior pathways
We then:
Set guidelines and determine an approval process
Conduct a complete site inspection
Capture relevant data in a prepared report
Propose a design solution if one has not been provided
Develop a budget and timeline
Upon review and acceptance by the designated decision makers we:
Present samples for sign selection
Produce signs upon “sign-off”
Install signs on pre-determined schedule
Train internal staff on system management
Bring project to a close with complete reporting and assessment of program.
Essentially, we provide the wayfinding process for clients and collaborators in search of wayfinding for a facility or property. Check out our collaborations page to learn more.
