Global Witness Workplace
We conducted wide-ranging consultation that cut across the organisation by using discrete methods of engagement:
- Occupancy and anonymous surveys
- Desk-based interviews
- ‘Planning for real’ style spatial workshops
- Visits to exemplar workplaces
- Town hall style presentations to obtain buy-in from the whole organisation.
We asked the campaigners to investigate their workplace using a polaroid camera and report headline issues – making the most of their journalistic skillset. A central board was set up in their existing workplace to post photos and comments; an effective way of capturing candid information anonymously.
Information gathered during the consultation has informed all aspects of the design – from the overall layout and proposed work-settings, down to the self-finishing, sustainably-sourced natural material palette – creating a workplace that truly reflects the values of the organisation it serves.
