Workplace Strategy

In such rapidly changing times, reviewing your workplace strategy is more important than ever.

And it goes beyond four walls. Today’s workplace ecosystem encompasses the digital space as well as the physical space.

Our in-depth research and consultancy identifies challenges and recommends practical and behavioural solutions. We then work closely with our design and build teams to deliver those solutions. We support senior teams in navigating their organisation's workplace future. And for those with multi-office portfolios, we offer workplace real estate reviews and recommendations for optimisation and rationalisation.

Workplace Research

Workplace Research

Evidence-based design creates a bespoke employee experience that’s a perfect fit for your future.

Our workplace consultancy digs deep into the attitudes and behaviours of your people. What do they need to help them focus? What helps them collaborate? What creates energy and creativity? What drives performance?

Using a variety of methods - such as utilisation studies, multi-office portfolio reviews, employee and leadership engagement and post-occupation evaluation - we gain a thorough understanding of your people, space and culture. We then work out what you need to create your ideal and bespoke workplace.

Workplace Technology

Workplace Technology

Be more agile. Technology to connect your people. 

Workplace design is evolving rapidly in a fast-paced digital society. Our homes are becoming more tech-enabled, and our workplaces need to be one step ahead. They need to offer the type of technology that we can't get at home. Hybrid meeting solutions. Interactive broadcast technology. Simple space booking systems. To make working lives easier and more effective.

From smart buildings that integrate tech to improve comfort and reduce carbon footprint to simple room and desk booking systems that make life easier and increase space utilisation.

Of course, technology has come to the forefront since the Covid-19 pandemic. As well as playing a crucial role in keeping us connected and working, it’s also vital to managing health and safety. Plus, by manipulating desk availability, reducing meeting room capacity and highlighting spaces that need cleaning, we can align technology and process to reduce risk and increase wellbeing.

A people-first approach to technology. 

To us, tech is a tool to improve working lives, increase productivity and reduce costs. Working closely with trusted tech partners, we evaluate your specific technology needs. We assess your people’s approach to change, their training needs and user requirements. We utilise our expertise in integrated tech solutions to help you define and implement your strategy.

Workplace Health and Wellbeing

Workplace Health and Wellbeing

Creating workspaces that help people feel good. 

The health and wellbeing of your people is fundamental to our approach. For many people, the workplace is their second home. It’s vital then that we create spaces to improve quality of working life and develop a culture of wellbeing.  

Nudging behaviour in the right direction. 

We look at health and wellbeing in detail. From employee surveys to discover your attitudes and behaviours, to design elements that encourage healthy behaviours. From locating staircases centrally to help increase step count. To creating sociable kitchens, meditation rooms, or outside spaces with greenery to get fresh air and daylight. From active travel suites with changing rooms, showers, secure cycle storage, drying cupboards and lockers. To height adjustable desks that enable your people to sit or stand.

Everyone is different. We create choice to allow people to feel in control over their own environment.  Whether it’s spaces for collaboration or concentration, or  those that encourage learning and creativity. We design to make a real difference to people’s working lives.

Workplace Sustainability

Workplace Sustainability

It’s our mission to make sustainability simple and actionable for our clients.

At Interaction, we’re keenly aware of the effects our actions and decisions have on the world.

We call it having “Intelligent Impact” and it influences everything we do, from using biophilia to accurately balance out an office’s CO2 emissions to ensuring we have trained mental health first aiders available throughout the business.

We lead by example. We’re proud to use our own workplacefrom office to siteas a beacon for how a sustainable approach can benefit both your people and the environment.  

We work with a growing number of clients who wish to address sustainability issues within their workplace.  Our strategy process involves assessing attitudes and helping you examine the role of impact, evidence and cost on a wide variety of initiatives. From the design and build process and materials used, through to how you operate your workplace. From using the latest smart building technologies, to thinking about how your people travel to work. From avoiding single use plastic, to looking at what, how and where you recycle.  

We can advise and support you in achieving accreditation such as BREAAM or LEEDproviding a full sustainability service from strategy through to completion
