What do you need for your future ready workspace?
After such a long time working from home it won’t be easy to lure everyone back to an office. Routines have been established, quality time has been restored and ‘dress-down every-day’ has become the norm.
But for many, the office is the creative hub of a business where teams share and inspire ideas. Company culture is reinforced when teams are together, socialising, interacting, and developing friendships.
Tech giant Apple have insisted that workers spend three days a week in an office, with their senior vice president stating:-
To get the most from that ‘in-person collaboration’ many offices are going to need to change. We’ve worked with clients to remove banks of desking (click to find out how we do this sustainably) and replaced them with a future ready, flexible workspace.
Clever design supported by creative, flexible workplace solutions provide the right environment to maximise connection and productivity.

Supporting relationships between people and teams and bringing them together for in-person and blended meetings. Productive, creative spaces that spark bright ideas.
For private meetings, confidential phone calls, focused work, or just quiet space to think through a task or problem. Adding meeting pods, phone booths and acoustic solutions provides respite from a busy workplace for important tasks.
Learning and Developing
Bringing the team together for training sessions, to learn new skills and for companywide meetings. Supporting new members of the team, who may not yet have been in the office, with additional training helps them feel valued and included.
Where space allows, adding outdoor office furniture gives employees a place to relax, take breaks, or work outside. There’s outdoor furniture for wet weather too!
Creating that ‘coffee shop buzz’ encourages interaction between different teams, junior and senior staff members and new recruits. ‘Human Moments’ that happen in informal settings are hard to replicate outside the office environment.
Well-being at work
Employees want a positive experience from their workspace with consideration given to their well-being. Planting and air filtration (HEPA air filters) enhance air quality. Adding a yoga room, space to meditate and shower facilities for those cycling to work, shows commitment from employers.
