To get the balance right in an agile workspace, a work place needs to create spaces that are actually enjoyable to work in. We discuss the solutions with SmartSpace General Manager James Dodunski in this article.
They say the future of workspaces is agile, but what does that mean?
At the beginning of the year, Brendon’s company introduced an agile workspace strategy to help increase productivity, creativity, and collaboration. We helped the company achieve this with several of our SmartSpace innovations and products.
We know there’s both positive and negative views on agile working. To help demystify the concept, we chatted to Brendon about what an average day in an agile workspace really looks like.
When Mercury underwent a major company rebrand three years ago it wasn’t just their logo and identity they wanted to address. They needed to make sure they united the staff, too. Working alongside Warren and Mahoney, we helped Mercury achieve their ideal workspace through our custom workplace solutions.
The open office revolution has changed the way we work, with many benefits to both staff and management. An agile, open environment promotes collaboration, enhances creativity, allows for varied working styles, and creates a sense of community among staff. But, like all revolutions, the path to success isn’t all smooth sailing. Many workers find open-plan, agile, and activity-based workplaces noisy and distracting…
Luckily, here at SmartSpace we have more than a few noise-reduction tricks and options up our sleeves.
Has your staff grown out of its current space? Does the space no longer work for you?
Is your lease coming to an end (and is it worth renegotiating or using the opportunity to try something new?) Or do you just feel it's time to shake up your office culture—try something that you haven't done before, energise your staff with more agile workspaces, or build the team with more collaborative spaces or focus hubs?
Clients, suppliers & friends...
One of the joys of the holiday season is the opportunity to say thank you and wish you all the best in the coming year…
We’ve been lucky to work on some EPIC projects this year and it’s all thanks to you!
The SmartSpace team will be taking a break from the 19th December, re-open for business on the 14th of January!
We’ll be finishing 2018 with a bang: Our amazing installation team will be working throughout the summer break to complete a project we are very excited to be a part of. Mercury Energy has chosen us to help maximise their new space in Newmarket with some of our favourite pieces of functional and stylish furniture – including customised pieces from our popular OkiDoki range (you check out the workstation and the leaner range here). We’ve worked alongside Warren & Mahoney to personalise each piece and cannot wait to see the finished result! Watch this space!
Stay safe over the break and see you in the new year,
James, Sheila & the SmartSpace team.
