The office, a photo shoot of the work floor
Documenting the work floor, that’s something you can leave to photographer Jeroen Bouman with peace of mind. He focuses on the human aspects, on collaboration, and captures your employees in bright, clear corporate photography with depth and perspective.
Teleperformance is one of the world’s largest players in call center services. They are constantly on the lookout for new colleagues, and so staff recruitment has a very prominent place on the website.
In order to give Candidate Applicants a good idea of the working conditions at Teleperformance, the head office in Brazil thought it was high time to have good and attractive photographs of the work floor. In the Netherlands they selected corporate photographer Jeroen Bouman.
“It was not an easy assignment, simply because no matter how modern and light it is, an office is just not a very sexy subject. Perhaps not surprising, because offices are designed with functionality in mind and are geared to efficiency. Desks and screens dominate the workplace, but ultimately it is about people. Cooperation, collegiality, I prefer to focus on those aspects.”
In consultation with the head office, a concise scenario was prepared with the most important subjects. The work processes themselves, a work consultation, a meeting. But facilities such as internal training opportunities, relaxation on the work floor and a cozy company restaurant with broad offerings had to be included in this corporate reportage.
“I wanted to create a -staged and fully-organized- photo essay that would emphasize a light and fresh atmosphere, so I fully lit each scene. The cool shades of the image editing enhance the freshness even more. And by consciously opting for an out-of-focus foreground and background, a spatial effect is created with a very natural focus on the employees.”
