For those who work in an office which spans several floors, the whereabouts of colleagues is an incalculable mystery which cannot be solved with conventional methods such as chaotic telephone systems or intranets.
Each floor should therefore be fitted with a periscope. Diligent workers in search
of assistance from a specific person or persons will be able to freely access the expandable periscope and have a quick peek round other floors.
Similarly, workers wishing to sneak outside for a crafty smoke can 'down periscope' and see if they can blaze a trail to the front doors without encountering middle-management.

to be shared, of course, with the other galley slaves.
