Our workplace philosophy

The workplace and how it functions is key to how productive people are and how successful a business performs. It is also about balancing efficiency of space and effectiveness of people.

We have identified six Habitats to be considered when creating a high performing work environment.

1. Welcome

First contact with the organisation occurs here and it’s the place where visitors discover what makes the culture unique.

2. Home

Everyone needs a ‘home’ or a dedicated workstation. Highly mobile workers need a place to perform their work on the go. The solution is to provide them with touch down facilities where they have access to tools and technology and are accessible to more sedentary workers for sharing information and experience.

3. Flow

When planned strategically, circulation spaces can encourage the serendipity associated with spontaneous informal exchanges. Primary pathways and settings promote opportunities for encounters and offer a spectrum of choice. This ensures all workplace areas enable productivity.

4. Collaborate

Collaboration settings to support teamwork should be located ideally adjacent to Home settings to assist in the speed of the development of ideas and flow of knowledge.

5. Formal Meet

Spaces for staged meetings provide the means to share information in different styles. They’re all about conveying the company image, learning and developing new ideas and, ultimately, expediting effective decision making.

6. Work Café

A signature space that can define a company’s culture, improve productivity and become a magnet that attracts employees to the workplace. It is a compelling new way to generate energy – a hub where people choose to work.
