The future of agile: a workplace insight
Agile workplaces to aid productivity
In today’s fast-paced, technology-fuelled workplace, staff are increasingly expected to ‘deliver more’ – bettering their productivity and driving growth throughout the business. Fittingly, as the pressure builds, employees – your most valuable asset – should be rewarded with more. And this doesn’t mean a pay rise, you’ll be glad to hear.
It’s all about increasing engagement and creating a more agile workspace that supports today’s modern working methods. We want staff to be proactively engaged in their work, constantly striving to be the best they can be, always searching out new ideas and discovering how they work best.
In order to enable this new method of working, staff deserve an inspirational and agile workspace, one that encourages creativity and harvests a desire and passion to exceed in all that they do. Companies that have an agile workplace signal that they’re ready to innovate, evolve and adapt to a changing marketplace – showing they’re ready to move with their staff.
Many companies are taking up this new and evolving trend, gradually moving away from the traditional office where staff sit at rows of desks. We’re seeing a transformation to open and agile workplaces, with comfortable seating, multiple areas to work and more collaborative areas where employees can participate in group projects. Staff need areas for individual focused work and open areas for group projects – we must blend the individual with the collective.
The best thing is, these workplace styles are totally within reach. Whether it be our new Causeway seating range which can be instantly re-arranged to any style layout, the Java bench system which is the perfect informal collaborative seating range or our Hive acoustic work pods, there are several simple, funky yet affordable furniture pieces that can be incorporated into your offices, quite simply and without a large upheaval.
If you’re looking to incorporate some of these trend pieces into your workplace or if you’re searching for inspiration give our friendly team a call on 0330 030 0330. We’re loaded with inspiration and we offer a free space planning service too, where we’ll incorporate any ideas you may have into an innovative and engaging area for your staff to thrive in.
