Workplace strategy

Our strategy services are built around evidence as opposed to assumption. We focus on the implementation of new working models and best practice, whilst improving workplace culture and enhancing the working environment. These services include:

The Project Stakeholder Meeting

At the beginning of any project WWW recommends that we start with the chairing of a Stakeholder Meeting with the board of directors and key decision makers within the business. This meeting enables us to ascertain the project drivers and challenges. At this stage the stakeholders can explore some options they potentially have in mind and discuss the pitfalls and the merits of each. The output of the meeting is to decide upon the way forward, the project objectives and the best approach for the organisation.

  • Develop a joint staff engagement plan
  • Define the project brief and key deliverables.
  • Identify how the space is perceived to our internal and external clients.
  • Discuss ideas on which spaces we keep, change or lose.
  • Identify the appetite for agile working
  • Define the level of flexibility in where, when and how staff complete their work.
  • Explore what their visitor “experience” should be
  • Establish how the space should reflect brand

The Workplace Vision Session

The Vison Session brings together all the study results in an executive summary and produces a discussion document to present to the board of directors and project stakeholders.

The creation of the Vision Session outputs is undertaken in close conjunction with the core project team and other internal stakeholders such as IT and HR before final presentation to the project stakeholders and board for sign off.

The Vision Session report includes:

  • Summary of findings
  • Results and messages
  • Background organisational data
  • Development of a new workplace model
  • Suggested concept workplace designs
  • A business case & benefits map

The intelligent Design Brief

The intelligent design brief is formulated from the results of the studies and the decisions made by the board of directors and project stakeholders at the Vision Session. Our next steps would be to formulate the component parts that create the Intelligent Design Brief. We will produce a report detailing recommendations for change and will provide details as follows:

  • The ratio of work settings
  • meeting rooms & sizes
  • breakout space & type
  • Social spaces settings
  • A review of departmental adjacencies (virtual)
  • A review of support functions
  • Cultural change communication
  • Suggestions for alternative ways of working

The Intelligent Design Brief can be handed to your chosen Architect or Designers or can form part of a procurement document to reach out to the market.
