Colliers International in Poland will advise on the development of workplace strategies and change management – the company has just opened Workplace Innovation department. The team is led by Sylwia Pędzińska, who takes over as director of the department.
Workplace Innovation is a modern approach to workplace design that integrates the knowledge and experience of property advisers, architects, business psychologists, sociologists and HR specialists. A diverse team of experts allows to carry out a comprehensive analysis of the current situation of the organization, define its needs and develop a multi-faceted strategy.
“Workplace Innovation is not just a change in the arrangement of office space, but above all a change of organizational culture, internal processes and people management. People and their needs become the central focus of the organization and any changes of the surrounding area are just a derivative of this approach,” said Sylwia Pędzińska, Partner at Colliers International, Director of Workplace Innovation.
The increased interest in the new approach to building workplace strategy can be seen in Poland for over a year. However, there is still a lot to be done in this area. In the Netherlands and the Nordic countries this approach to office space has already been observed for at least 10 years where large groups of specialists are engaged in the process of workplace design.
“What is noteworthy, each organization requires a different approach. Applying the same methods and solutions in organizations with different cultures, profile or size will not bring the desired results. The key to success is greatly individualized approach,” added Sylwia Pędzińska.
