In a world where the pace of change demands constant innovation, attracting and retaining the best talent is key to success. Employers are recognising the need to use the various tools at their disposal, to make their businesses attractive places to work. More specifically we hear clients looking to create:
- a culture of curiosity where change is encouraged and accepted, complemented by management that trusts employees, encourages individuality and gives them the confidence to experiment and innovate, to make a difference;
- a technology strategy which allows for personal preferences in terms of the tools available, yet is secure and still collaborative, and enables work any how, any where;
- a place of work that has regards to changing working habits driven by the above, and where employees choose to come together whenever they can.
As culture and technology are increasingly driving the decisions on real estate and workplace, we are increasingly working in parallel with technology specialists right from the outset.
The future of work centres around a philosophy of positively encouraging and supporting productivity. Specifically, this refers to a culture that makes internal communication and commercial activity simple, reliable, and therefore fruitful. There are three essential cornerstones of such a culture. These are: trust in the employee; workforce mobility; and technological flexibility.
