Designing for Employee Wellbeing
AECOM workplace strategy and design specialist Nicola Gillen looks at how strengthening the relationship between people and place through workplace transformation can influence employee and organisational performance.

The workplace is no longer just a place where we go to ‘work’. To attract and retain the best talent, today’s workplaces need to inspire, support wellbeing and encourage collaboration and creativity. So how do you create workplaces that achieve all these things while also driving employee performance and achieving return on investment?

Following a recent acquisition, AECOM rationalised its real estate portfolio by consolidating its two central London offices into a single workplace over five floors in Aldgate Tower, East London. The move brought about the opportunity to drive cultural and behaviour change across the business: our vision was to encourage innovation, collaboration, wellbeing and ultimately employee engagement.

To do this, we brought together an in-house multi-disciplinary project team from workplace strategists and interior designers through to IT, human resources and organisational development experts. The team then developed and implemented several key workplace strategy and design initiatives including agile working, technological transformation and comprehensive change management processes, all designed to optimise the user experience during and post transformation. Central to the success of the project was putting employees’ working requirements at the heart of the design process.Read More...
