These initiatives can be useful in many workplaces. However, creating a thriving environment is more than just going through a checklist, and ticking off as many points as possible. What works for one organisation may not work for another.

The key of creating a thriving workplace is to get clear about the objectives of the business and the workplace, and to keep these in focus when making design decisions.

Having a clear and consistent workspace design strategy requires setting the right foundations: setting the ‘right’ vision, asking the ‘right’ questions, and talking to the ‘right’ people. The result is a workplace that is fully in line with the business’s vision, brand, and culture.
