Reduce your corporate real estate costs, improve staff engagement and productivity, and enhance your brand identity and customer experience.


Workplace design initiatives gives employees a choice about how, when and where they work. This means creating workspaces for specific tasks and allowing choices about how, when and where those tasks are undertaken.  This might include activity based work within an office environment as well as the ability to work from home or in designated second bases (such as a co-working hub) or third spaces including coffee shops, libraries and airport lounges.

Such initiatives can significantly reduce the amount of corporate office space required by an organisation. Thus have a significant effect on the bottom line through reduced real estate and facilities management costs and improved staff retention and engagement.  The re-configuration of both work and place can also improve brand identity and the customer experience.  These initiatives also greatly benefit staff through increased flexibility, less travel time commuting and having a variety of places for specific purposes to conduct work from – thus increasing employee engagement and productivity.

Successful workplace initiatives require strategic leadership to drive all necessary elements from across the spectrum of place (real estate and design), human resource and talent management as well as supporting systems and infrastructure such as IT.

Guild of S&K works with you to plan and design, implement and continually evolve what will work for you.  The first steps are to explore what the options are and to discover what might work for you.  This will help you to plan and define a workplace strategy and develop the necessary business case and implementation plan.
