Few underestimate the impact that Covid-19 has on the way that we work, and in the last 12 months we have all had to adapt to working from home. We’ve moved irreversibly past the Monday to Friday, 9-5 office routine that so many of us were tethered to. We can now see that the future of work is more open than perhaps first thought – we have proved that we are more adaptable and resilient than we could have ever imagined. The world of work is changing for good, and whilst that brings with it many challenges, it also presents opportunities for organisations of all sizes; irrespective of the size of workspace that you occupy.
There is still uncertainty over when, whether and how we should get back to the office, so it has never been a better time to step back and take a look at your organisation. Do you have a workplace and a work policy that will work for you now and in the future? Do you know what you and your people need and want? How you can deliver that in a way that is sustainable for the future?
In the months leading up to the pandemic, we worked with Ingleton Wood, a forward-thinking design agency, to design and deliver an agile working environment that made the most of a small footprint. The goal was to design a truly people-focussed workplace which addressed the immediate challenges of COVID, as well as one which could confidently be used in the future as a desirable space that staff could enjoy and use in the future.
In our latest webinar, in partnership with Ingleton Wood, we want to share with you how we worked together to deliver their workplace strategy. A key part of our approach was to gather data to inform a robust, evidence-based workplace strategy. We will then dive further into the process to understand how a desire to change – and the data to confirm what people want to change – can translate into a functional design whatever the size of the space. We will share some of the success stories from the agile working environment that Ingleton Wood created, as well as showing how the benefits of this new working environment will stand us in good stead for the more immediate post-Covid world, as well as the future of work more generally.
