Improve bottom line by working smarter with your space

Workplaces can positively impact their bottom line if they work smarter and creatively with the spaces they occupy. “Activity Based Working” is a methodology that introduces flexibility into a workplace setting.

ACORPP Project manager and ABW expert, Gordon Bateup, said that ABW reimagined-workspaces reflected the different type of work that an employee might engage in on any particular day.

“As employees arrive at work they can choose the type of setting that is required for their day. It might be for concentrated work that needs a quiet area or a collaborative work area in a different part of the building where they might use a meeting room,” he said.

Changes in the workplace environment, like this, could drive increased innovation and productivity. It could also improve recruitment and retention of talent.

“Planning for ABW can also significantly reduce the number of desks and separate offices required. Budget saved in leasing and fit out can then be reinvested in a higher specification working environment and information technology needs.”

The benefits can also flow through to savings on outgoings like energy usage while ABW also eliminates the need to constantly migrate workstations and teams as the business evolves.

“An ABW workspace can be configured at any time but the best opportunity is often around a lease event – like renewal or when it’s time to relocate,” Gordon said.
