When working with your designer, think about the areas of priority within your workplace and the spaces that will be used regularly and long-term. It is important to highlight these areas and your allocated budget to ensure your space is intended for maximum value and longevity. For example, incorporating new high-tech presentation hardware into your workplace – is this something that will be utilised regularly and on a long-term basis? Perhaps this may be quickly superseded and your budget better allocated to updating your staff breakout area.
Take the time to really understand your culture, people and brand by nurturing staff input and gaining feedback on their suggested improvements. This will ensure your design will stand the test of time and be uniquely you!
