The pandemic has dramatically altered many aspects of life. The workplace in particular has undergone rapid changes with organisations having to re-assess the way they work and re-structure business models in order to survive. Our collective working from home experience has taught us a lot about how our people work. Businesses can now use this knowledge to better understand behaviours, technologies and space before committing to change.
No workplace will be the same and as we adapt to our new normal the need to involve our people is paramount. There is an opportunity to harness the best of both pre and post COVID work styles. BRM assists organisations to survey, engage and get their people involved in order to explore preferred and future ways of working.
Staff Engagement Can Uncover Key Insights To Guide Decision Making
Case Study: Staff Engagement In The Not For Profit Sector
BRM has recently conducted staff engagement surveys for a Melbourne-based Not-For-Profit organisation who wants to be a better steward of their resources. Needing to reduce their occupancy costs by up to 40%, the organisation is facing a decision of whether to stay in their current space or move to a new premises.
As BRM’s property team provides guidance on the space itself, our workplace consultants have conducted a series of staff surveys which will give management insights into the current needs of their teams. The outcome of BRM’s service will be a space that not only fulfills the organisation’s economic goals but supports the wellbeing of its people.
The above survey conclusions reveal a few interesting points about the staff of this particular organisation:
How Engaging Your Staff Allows For A Better Change Process
The staff engagement service provided by BRM is not a series of numbers presented to your HR department. Rather, it is an interactive experience designed to get everyone on board the change process. Not only does staff engagement explore new ways of working, it empowers your people by offering them choice and a say in the direction of the workplace. The organisations who listen to their people experience a greater willingness to change because their people have been an active part of the change process.
At BRM, property and people go hand in hand. We guide organisations through decisions that are not only fiscal, but emotional and wellbeing decisions. Our property advisors could find and create the most functional workspace, but it means nothing if it doesn’t support and nurture the people within in.
