Having a great workspace improves efficiency plus so much more…


Do you want your employees to feel like they are looking forward to showing up for another day at work or simply accept that they show up because they have to? If your answer is the former, then a good hard look at your workspace may reveal more than you think.

There have been a variety of studies that consider the connection between a more engaged and productive workforce and their surroundings such as Gensler’s https://www.gensler.com/uploads/document/337/file/2013_US_Workplace_Survey_07_15_2013.pdf

This study in particular highlighted that a workspace should have four key areas for employees to Focus, Collaborate, Learn and Socialise. Even in the smallest of workspaces this is possible with some clever planning.

Consider – does your space reflect the culture that you want to create in your business?

As your business may grow and change, you should consider upgrading and changing your workspace to reflect how your employees actually work. There are some factors that play an important part, like making the most of natural light and ventilation where you can, planning the layout of your furniture to optimise space and using colour and wall graphics to brighten a space.

Not only could your office or reception space be the first impression for a potential customer, this is a representation of your brand and values which employees want to feel proud of being a part of.

Sarah and the team at Quest have provided us HR support since January 2013.

Quest Consulting Services provided us with a comprehensive employment structure with contacts and a handbook and have been on hand to help me deal with the occasional issue I have faced with team members through their telephone support service.

As our personal Consultant, Sarah provides a quality, professional and complete service which is great value for money.

Sarah has transformed our HR and has introduced systems that have taken lots of hassle away from staffing issues within our company.

We have worked with Sarah and her team for 5 years and in this time our business has grown considerably. With telephone support available for all our Managers as they need it plus Sarah and her team proactively keeping us updated on changes in legislation we are reassured that we are in safe hands.

The HR software that Quest implemented also helps us keep on top of the routine aspects of HR such as holiday bookings, recording absence, holding personnel records which then allows Sarah and her team easy access to give us relevant advice.

Our Managers have also benefited from workshops run by Sarah to help develop their skills on handling issues such as disciplinary, appraisals, recruitment etc….

The support of Quest is invaluable and provides a much more cost effective solution than employing a HR Manager in house.

Why would anybody NOT have Sarah working 'alongside' their business?

I've known Sarah for many years and she's always been there for me and the business when her wealth of knowledge has been called upon.

We have used Sarah and her team to handle our contracts, handbook and Health & Safety and they are readily available on the telephone when needed or on site at our premises.

Highly recommended.
