Workplace Management isn’t just a name change, it’s a new discipline.
In a rapidly changing world where new technologies threaten to change the shape of organisations and where for many, people really are their most valuable resource, smart business leaders are seeing the ‘workplace experience’ as a critical untapped resource needed to attract, inspire, enthuse and make productive the talented people they need to deliver their missions.
And the workplace itself is changing, the Digital workplace is a critical component. No longer a building, the workplace is anywhere people work and underpinned by technology without which people can’t deliver. It’s no longer just ‘infrastructure’ either – it’s the social and psychological environment in which people work. And it’s not just about design, it’s about creating multi-sensory, multifaceted experiences closely aligned to business drivers, organisational personality and driven by science. Oh, and it’s no longer about delivering a series of disparate operational services, it’s about delivering and evolving frictionless workplace ‘experiences’.
Workplace Management is a discipline that transcends traditional organisational boundaries (IT, CRE, FM, HR) to take ownership of the design, delivery and continuous evolution of a total, multi-sensory, multi-faceted employee ‘experience’, that embraces physical, information, social and service environments all fused together to create the conditions under which the maximum value is extracted from every second in the ‘workplace’ wherever and whatever it is. It’s consciously and systematically constructed to support the organisation in achieving its strategic goals whilst recognizing the need for strategic flexibility in an ever-changing world.
