We believe that great office design has the power to inspire joy, improve lives and strengthen the spirit of community.
It’s hard to believe that it’s coming up three years now since my journey with Calibro began! As a young and inexperienced school leaver back in June 2018 – despite having the passion and enthusiasm to succeed – I hadn’t given a lot of thought into where my passions or ambitions lay. Having approached the directors at Calibro for an employment opportunity, I was incredibly fortunate to be given the opportunity to join the growing team.
One of the very first things that impressed me in my first weeks at Calibro was the level of detail and thought that goes into every project. One of the phrases which sticks in my memory was, “to make an office look nice is one thing, but to make an office that is unique to the business needs and people requirements is another”. The level of thought and detail that went into each project, from listening to and fully understanding all the business and employee needs, through to the exceptional delivery of each project in view of improving people’s lives at work, is what brought out my true passion and ambition!
That passion is simply to improve people’s lives at work. The feeling of satisfaction and reward you get out of transforming workspaces to improve people’s wellbeing and ultimately lives is immense. With almost a third of our lives spent at work, it makes it all the more important to provide inspiring office environments that improve the wellbeing of your people at work. Investing in the team and the working environment to make it an attractive place for your staff to work in is becoming ever more important in today’s environment to set companies apart from their competition. We believe that great office design has the power to inspire joy, improve lives and strengthen the spirit of community.
With current restrictions and with the majority of people working from home, it might seem to some that the office doesn’t have a future. However, the majority of people are craving interaction with their colleagues and it is going to be key to create spaces that are a hub for collaboration and creativity going forwards. We are currently enjoying working with many organisations who are looking ahead to the post-Covid world and creating people-centric spaces that improve people’s lives at work.
Also as part of my passion in improving people’s lives at work, I am extremely passionate about making a positive impact on the environment and am really excited about the programme that we are setting out at Calibro to make a difference and to commit to a sustainable future……. but more of that to follow.
