Let's talk.

We'd love to hear about your project and help get you started.






Organisations should take a strategic, systematic approach to improving the productivity of the workplace.


That’s why all businesses need to adopt a robust workplace strategy.


Workplaces bring together the people, processes, places and technologies that organisation’s needs to function.

Strategically aligning the workplace with an organisation’s goals to drive improved productivity and performance will enable an organisation to maximise every aspect of its enterprise. This encompasses the productivity, communication and collaboration of its people, to the cost effectiveness of its environments and its ability to adapt and innovate its business processes.

Many organisations workplace transformation projects respond reactively to external influences such as a lease break, merger or acquisition, growing headcount, or the need to consolidate or relocate. This is problematic, driven by the short-term, and neglects the importance of taking a long-term strategic view of the workplace. Decisions made reactively undermine the workplaces future ability to perform to it’s potential.


By viewing the workplace strategically, we deliver high performing workplaces that are flexible and adaptable to your organisations future requirements.

Your people and organisation are the centre of our Workplace Performance Evaluation model.


This is fundamental in obtaining a coherent understanding of how you work, your processes, tools and work environment. We can then understand how these impact areas which are highlighted in the within the model support your organisation in achieving its objectives.

Delivering quantifiable improvements.

Strategic workplace transformation that delivers quantifiable improvements in business performance requires a robust, systematic approach. Getting it right means never losing sight of the bigger picture and always measuring decisions against their impact on the overarching organisations objectives.

For over 30 years we have worked alongside organisations to develop a deep understanding of the way they work, and what success looks like to them. This knowledge and understanding is used to positively realign their work environments to optimally support their organisations objectives.

Our evidence-based approach to workplace design concentrates not just on the physical space and the tools and technology it contains, but also at the behavioural change needed to innovate the way your people work.

By viewing your workplace holistically, we enable your people to achieve more, driving profitability and competitiveness.


Harmsen Tilney Shane’s Workplace Management Model is the research framework we use to evaluate and understand, your business, your people, the nature of their work and the way they approach it and how your work environment impacts your organisations performance.

The way people work, both individually and in collaboration, is the driving force behind productivity and ultimately profitability. Your people, their work and how they communicate and collaborate are our first focus.
