Who

As skilled HR business partners who are talented in decor & design we provide you with practical, quality, and aesthetically pleasing work spaces to address productivity, employee engagement and labour law compliance and workplace ergonomics issues .

 

What

 

We partner with you to develop your ideal workspace design, whether you are designing a work space from scratch, simply updating your boardroom layout and furnishings, or re-structuring your workforce after a business acquisition.  Are you re-structuring your organization after acquisitions and need to get your head around HOW and WHERE your new employees are going to be allocated working space and at the same time ensuring they are highly engaged?

 

Is the current layout of work spaces impractical and not proving the most productive space? Is your boardroom looking a little drab? Is your front entrance where you receive your customers stuck in the ’80s?

 

Are you strategizing what you can do to create space for mindfulness? Can you accommodate people with disabilities in your workplace?

 

Have you addressed the ergonomic risks that may impair overall system performance and well being in your workplace, aligned with the Ergonomics Regulations, 2019 published in the Occupational Health and Safety Act?

 

Do you have a private space where breastfeeding Moms can take their breastfeeding breaks to express milk in compliance with the Code of Good Practice on the Protection of Employees during Pregnancy and after the Birth of a Child (which forms part of the Codes of the BCEA).

 

What role does workplace design play in culture creation and employee engagement you may ask?  A global study found that there is a strong correlation between high workplace satisfaction and high employee engagement, with employees who have greater control over their physical workplace – including access to private spaces – also reporting the highest engagement levels.

 

The findings show that employers could be missing a trick when it comes to planning their employee engagement strategies. This is because, consistently, the most engaged workers were those who had more control over their work experience, including the ability to concentrate easily and work in teams without disruption.  Workers who have the ability to choose where they want to work in the office, based on the task at hand are much more engaged in the work they do.
