In a lot of ways, the pandemic has been the conduit for a major shift in how we do business. Earlier in the pandemic, we were forced to seek out alternative ways to work with the future for many uncertain. However, the challenge now is growth, retaining talent and nurturing talent and understanding why people come to work every day.
A workplace designed for success is a place where people can be their best selves and the environment reflects the values of the organisation. We are seeing a rise in the number of remote workers, and an increasing number of people who want to work from home or have no fixed office at all. We are also seeing an increase in the number of people who want to work flexibly, with their hours determined by their own needs rather than those of their employer.
Does your workspace design reflect your values?
Workplace design is all about how a company’s office space reflects its values, culture, and goals. It’s about creating a place where employees feel motivated to do their best work, collaborate and communicate. It is important to create a space that suits the needs of employees. Employees need a space where they can feel comfortable and be able to focus on their work.
Communicating the way, you work
Communication around the new ways of working, however, it is a leader’s role to successfully communicate the space to their employees. A great workplace design can only go so far. It is a foundation that needs to be combined with leadership and communication. The most successful businesses all have a leadership team that understands how to give their staff purpose and celebrate them in the design outcome.
A workplace designed for success is an environment that needs to be able to offer flexible solutions for all types of working arrangements. The workplace design should be based on the needs of the employees and their work style and leveraged by leaders within the organisation to cultivate culture.
