Office neighbourhoods refer to the various sections or areas within a workplace that are often organised based on departments, teams or functions. Think of them as mini-communities within the larger office space, where groups of colleagues with similar roles or responsibilities work in proximity to one another.

These neighbourhoods serve several purposes:

  1. Collaboration: Colleagues within the same neighbourhood can easily interact and collaborate on projects or tasks, fostering teamwork and innovation.

  2. Resource Sharing: Teams in the same neighbourhood often share resources such as meeting rooms, equipment, or specialised tools, making it convenient for them to access what they need for their work.

  3. Culture and Identity: Each neighbourhood may develop its own unique culture and identity, reflecting the values and dynamics of the teams that inhabit it.

  4. Efficiency: By grouping related teams or departments together, communication and workflow efficiency can be improved, as employees can quickly access the expertise or support they need from nearby colleagues.

In the context of UMA, neighbourhoods are used to create booking policies to allow or restrict employees (within teams) access to certain spaces.
