From occupancy and natural daylight to losing a box of Jimmy Choos, where we sit and where and how we store things - working environments occupied much of our time. Taking the positive view of space reviews and office moves, enforced housekeeping can be beneficial. It also allows the opportunity to engage with business functions on a deeper level, working with them to understand their archiving needs while at the same time being close enough to reinforce the vital issue of compliance and ensure risk is managed. The clamping down on homeworking due to risk and security concerns is another interesting development. We talked about culture change, moving between sectors. Is there really any difference between public and private? Is the public sector more progressive? The battles are the same in any sector. I will take away this thought from today’s breakfast - in order to get that win, it’s about taking on someone else’s viewpoint to understand how they see what you’re trying to do. Walk a mile in their shoes.
