Companies are approaching their property strategy with a view to driving better performance, and increasing profits. Your property and your people are two for your biggest assets and are intrinsically linked. Everyone wants to make sure that their staff can work as efficiently as possible, so how do you design a working environment that will make a difference? Can you create a workspace that better supports the productivity of your staff? This seminar aims to give you the ammunition you need as you set out on your journey to create a high performance working environment.
Why should you attend?
In a recent survey, 73% of the staff told us that their workplace did not support their tasks or they found it de-moralising. Do you like your workplace? How does it make you feel? Is it somewhere that helps you do your job better? What do your colleagues think of it? Office designers have been asking these questions and backed by academic research from behavioural psychologists and evidence from corporations from Google to Jive Software we know that happiness fuels productivity and success. What’s more good office design creates an environment that engages employees, fosters a sense of creativity, motivation and, crucially, points to evidence of more productivity.
This seminar will help you to better understand what makes your staff happy and motivated, and the effect that the design of your office will have on productivity and creativity. This is an unmissable event if you are planning an office relocation, refurbishment or want to become the employer of choice.
