a global company adopt a "hoteling" model
Imagine being responsible for moving 4,000 people. Now imagine asking
all of those people not only to relocate but to give up their permanent
offices and start "making reservations" for space only as needed.
DN1 designed and implemented a series of strategically designed
initiatives that included helping key leadership anticipate the natural
resistance to this change. We developed a comprehensive plan for just-in-time
communications, and supported functional groups with a champions program
so employees had a voice in the changing office environment. In addition,
we developed training materials to support desired behaviors, and stayed
on to make sure employees didn't slip back into "homesteading."
As a result, the client reduced escalating costs of real estate and the
workforce appreciated the benefits of flexible workspace supported by first-class
service and technology support. DN1 led additional moves for several locations
of this global firm over the next few years.
