Booker T. Washington, an influential African American leader of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, once proclaimed that, “Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way”. What a simple reminder this should be in today’s competitive business world where it is all too easy to fall into the habit of perceiving common or basic “things” as insignificant, and therefore, worthy of complete disregard. Companies today tend to focus more commonly on achieving excellence by remaining a step ahead of all the rest with a mindset of obtaining the “latest and the greatest” strategically and technologically. Public perception of a company or organization translates into the formation of ideas, attitude, and basis for determining its excellence and success. When striving for business excellence, don’t forget to begin with the basics in the office by transforming “common things in an uncommon way”.The presentation of a common fixture in most front offices, a reception desk for example, can quickly instigate an abundance of thought provoking questions from visitors. Analysis of a reception area and receptionist desk itself can provide answers as to whether or not a company is:
- Committed to Excellence?!

Not only will clients walk into the company lobby and recognize the importance placed on excellence at work, but the modern reception desk and other contemporary, executive office furniture being modeled will spark enthusiasm as it demonstrates appreciation to employees likewise, indicating value and respect given for their jobs.
