You might be looking around your office interior at this very moment and thinking it’s renovation time. But change for change’s sake is not the solution.
Many office refurbishment companies – including interior designers and other fitout specialists – will take a purely visual approach to enacting your commercial office refurbishment, without considering the unique culture and drivers of your business.
How can your culture be leveraged to promote staff wellness and workforce performance, attract and retain A-grade talent, and meet the demands of a multigenerational workforce and rapidly evolving technology?
Only by approaching your business from a 360-degree, multidimensional perspective will your new office fitout be a change worth making. That’s why you need to enlist the services of a workplace transformation partner, not just another office fitout company.
Here’s how a workplace change partner, the likes of Axiom, will dig deeper and deliver generously:

The right workplace transformation partner will spend the time getting to know your business and people to determine exactly what makes them special. All of this information will then be used to accentuate your strengths – or, alternatively and additionally, make improvements where they can be made – as part of the Ideation of your new office fitout.
Questions that might be asked:
- How do your employees prefer to work?
- Do they need to gather together or do they require quiet spaces or both?
- What sort of technologies are you using and where is your business headed in terms of agility and connectivity?
- How are you currently communicating across teams and how can this be further facilitated?
- Do you have high rates of absenteeism or employee churn?
The answers to all these questions should directly influence what occurs next in the Ideation phase.A workplace transformation partner ensures your office fit out give measurable ROI. #axiomworkplaces #officedesign Click To Tweet
