Workspace transformation was the subject of Claremont’s latest event.
Bringing more than fifty CEOs, business leaders and facilities and IT professionals together, the day-long event on 14th June 2016 looked at how innovation in workspace design can deliver a seismic shift in business and operational performance.
Topics under discussion included agile working and how it can accelerate productivity; the role of workspace technology in enhancing connectivity and reducing cost; how flexible working can extend the workspace beyond the physical constraints of the office; useful workspace strategies to win the war for talent and why workspace wellbeing is a vital component of business success.
Tim Frankland, joint managing director of Claremont said: “Businesses have five major considerations in order to survive – profitability, productivity, adaptability, resilience and being cost effective. This event was focused on helping businesses to achieve those things by explaining the link between work environment and performance. Employees now look beyond just the obvious remuneration and benefits packages on offer; they want to be part of organisations that are progressive and adaptive and which have environments that really support the way work is done.
“We were delighted with the turnout and the quality of the businesses that joined us and very much look forward to our next event, later in the year.”
The Workspace Transformation event was held at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge and featured presentations from Ken Bundy, creative director at Claremont, Mike Adams, workspace technology specialist for VEGA, Stuart Kotchie, director at Harmsen Tilney Shane, and Steve Carr, head of property and facilities at LV=. The event also gave attendees the chance to experience the Mercedes-Benz track and driving simulators.
