Why knowledgeable is one of our core values

We're a Consultancy dishing out expert advice and guidance on the strategy, design and implementation of workplace technologies, so we're in the knowledge game.

Consultancy should do what it says on the tin: provide new concepts, ideas and designs to give clients the performance, resilience and flexibility they need to drive their business aspirations. 

We put a lot of legwork into being a leader in technology workplace visioning. To continually add value to our clients necessitates a constant reviewing of the latest market developments and the impact that these developments can have on technology design; from the fundamental infrastructure through to the client interface.

    Through our network of industry and manufacturer contacts, we make sure that we’re plugged into the future radar of what is being developed in the labs, so that we get early sight of new concepts. We are also prolific visitors to trade events to keep abreast of new standards, techs and trends. You can read a selection of our latest articles and opinions below.

    Clash of the digital titans: tensions for space and smart
    Tensions between today’s workplace and the emerging digital workplace were brought into sharp relief at WORKTECH’s latest Tech and Trends 2019 briefing. Digital transformation will significantly affect two-thirds of all employees, according to a research study conducted by MIT’s Dr Kristine Dery. Aligning technology with business objectives has never been more important, but this can lead to tensions between traditional methods and adopting new practices. WORKTECH’s annual Tech and Trends event, held at Herman Miller’s showroom in Aldwych on 16 April 2019, looked at some of the most frequent clashes between today’s workplace and the emerging digital workplace.
