Workspace Group PLC

Why Workspace Group PLC IS A MOST LOVED WORKPLACE®

Systemic Collaboration

EMPLOYEES COLLABORATE THROUGHOUT OUR COMPANY BY …

Employee feedback tells us that our strong culture and set of values are well received by our people, though we know there are always areas where we can improve. While we carry out an annual survey, which saw an 86% response rate, we also gather feedback from a series of face-to-face and virtual events throughout the year.
Our quarterly Wrap Live town hall broadcasts provide a forum to hear from teams across the business and encourage collaborative working. This year we introduced a bi-monthly Wrap on Tour, where our leadership team visits clusters of buildings to catch up with centre teams, gather informal feedback and find new ways of working together.

Positive Vision of the Future

EMPLOYEES AT OUR COMPANY HAVE A POSITIVE VISION FOR THE FUTURE BECAUSE …

We have a clear, well-articulated company purpose – “to give businesses the freedom to grow” – and vision – “to be home to London’s brightest businesses”.
Our purpose has created a culture that puts our stakeholders first.
We keep our staff well informed of Workspace’s goals and news, providing weekly updates via newsletters and the intranet as well as quarterly face-to-face and virtual town halls, where this is an opportunity for questions and answers. Weissue regular and transparent internal communications, taking the time to be as transparent as possible and outlining our sustainability goals.

Company Respect

WE SHOW RESPECT AND ENSURE THAT ALL VOICES ARE HEARD AND IDEAS ARE VALUED THROUGHOUT THE COMPANY BY …

Our success depends on our people. Having that breadth of experience and perspective helps us attract and retain talent and improves our decision making, customer focus and employee satisfaction. We wanted to further strengthen our diversity and inclusivity. It was great to see this reinforced by our annual employee survey, with people telling us that they are invested in the diversity of our Company.
In response to the survey, we launched a project to gather data from our staff to start benchmarking our diversity. It was fantastic
to see our staff so engaged on the topic, with more than 90% completing our request for data.
Things we have done so far:
• Changes in how we recruit, appealing to a great diversity of candidates, while ensuring internal and external candidates have the same opportunities
• Launched a Diversity & Inclusion Networking Group, delivered Unconscious Bias and Harassment training, and introduced support networks for parents and carers
• Improvements to our appraisal process to highlight career development, and are testing new Career Pathway programmes for Relief, Centre Coordindators and Assistant CMs

Company Support / Killer Outcomes

WE SUPPORT OUR EMPLOYEES IN ACHIEVING THEIR PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL GOALS BY …

We launched a Career Pathway programme for our staff to map clear career development pathways.

Alignment of Values

OUR COMPANY’S VALUES ARE ALIGNED WITH OUR EMPLOYEES BECAUSE …

Our values are central to our business and guide how we should treat each other, our customers and our partners. Our values were initially created by carrying out workshops with our staff who shared
In our 2022 employee survey, people told us they felt the name of our Be A Little Bit Crazy value didn’t feel like the right fit. We launched an internal competition and chose a simple, aspirational replacement – Make It Fun – a reminder for us to be creative, spontaneous and enjoy what we do.
Our quarterly Workspace Winners awards celebrate those who have lived these values.
