Recruitment staffing firm, The Adecco Group, recently partnered with Unispace to design a workspace with the intention of being a “branch for the future”.
The aim of the project was to adopt an activity-based working model, which led to the idea of task-based working and the removal of desk ownership. The ABW strategy offers flexibility and allows people to move to different work settings according to the task they’re working on.
The brief from Adecco outlined an interior that would appeal to its highly-varied candidate base that harmoniously included all brands in one space without having a clash of brand colours. The space, therefore, features a neutral palette and expression of Adecco’s primary brand colour.
Natasha Bonugli, Regional Principal, Design, said: “The intent was for the office not to simply be an office, but to be a place to build lasting customer/candidate relationships. A place to meet, collaborate, connect; a place to make all who visit feel comfortable and welcome; and a place to inspire, challenge, impress and grow the business. It was crucial that the space appealed to the variety of job seekers that work with Adecco.
Olivia Giangrasso, Associate, Design, and project lead for Adecco, said: “Our solution was to represent the various brands through integrated technology ‘at the click of a button’. The client had the ability to adapt the space using technology, and tailoring the environment for the different brands and visiting candidates.”
The Amsterdam office had to present a workplace that facilitated interaction with this broad variety of skills and experiences, while comfortably expressing the different Adecco brands using the space.
The project resulted in a flexible and agile design that created a workplace to accommodate a broad variety of skills and experiences and supports a dynamic rather than a static workforce and businesses.
