Services Workplace change

We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are

Given that people are your most valuable asset, we see employee buy-in and engagement as a crucial part of any office move or refurbishment. A detailed change programme should ideally be initiated during RIBA Stage 2 (Concept design), enabling early engagement with the people who will use the future space. Not only can your employees then contribute to the design process, it will encourage positive change in behaviours and adoption of new ways of working if they feel they have contributed to the development of their new space.

People can develop a strong sense of ownership about their workplace, and in particular their desk and immediate surroundings. Change is a journey which staff need to both buy into, and go on to ensure they are happy, productive and effective in their new work environment.

We facilitate the journey for employees from how they work today, to how they will work in the future through a process of workshops, surveys, focus groups, interviews, communications, training and events. This helps to mitigate potential barriers throughout and deliver a successful, seamless and efficient transformation process.
