Beyond Workspace Consulting uses a unique tailored technology strategy to enhance employee experience
Beyond Workplace Consulting Ltd has launched with a mission to focus on helping organisations navigate their transition into a virtual working environment, following the game-changing global pandemic which, according to *Gartner, will result in 48% of employees operating remotely for a proportion of their working week. The company’s tailored technology strategy applies design thinking methodology, focusing on the needs of staff and their overall employee experience, helping organisations to build a virtual community for a diversified workforce.
Beyond Workplace Consulting offers a range of virtual working consulting services from strategy, to change management and content creation. With future workspaces having to adapt to include those based remotely, Beyond Workplace Consulting works in partnership with companies to create a digital strategy and virtual company culture, enabling teams to be productive together.
CEO and founder Amy Cronshaw has an extensive background in helping large tech and financial organisations choose the right technologies and digital resources to enable in-house teams and customers to use technology more effectively. She works alongside a team of consultants with many years of HR, IT and Security knowledge and experience, and a unique perspective on the relationship between technology and the employee. They have a passion for creating productive, happy workplaces to create the best virtual and physical working environments to foster a community mindset and culture, and understand that people make a company.
“Technology decision making is often carried out in isolation from the user,” says Cronshaw. “Our approach is to apply design thinking methodology, bringing the focus back to the needs of the people. If you first work out how your teams interact and approach their working day you can then assess the different technologies that will enhance the employee experience. The technology should be there to aid a process not to be the focus of it.
“Whilst some organisations may use audio or video conferencing to keep in touch, those vital ‘water cooler chats’ have all but disappeared. This makes it a more important time than ever to invest in technology that keeps your workforce connected and allows you to support their wellbeing and productivity.
“We hope, in this time of uncertainty, we can help companies to forge the future of their workplaces. Everyone has experienced an unprecedented amount of change in the recent months, Beyond are here to help you create and deliver a strategy that ensures you are providing the best working environment for your greatest assets, your people.”
