Imagine walking into the reception area of a potential supplier and being offered an uncomfortable seat with torn upholstery. The receptionist bravely makes you a coffee with an old kettle after rifling through the cupboard, vainly trying to find a mug without a chip. In the corner sits a spindly spider plant, unwatered and unloved. For a company keen to impress with its creativity, expertise and innovation, this scenario would be unthinkable.
Your work environment speaks volumes: what does yours say about you?
It is difficult when entering the same building every morning, day after day, with a fresh set of eyes but you could try it now.
Imagine you were a client; is what you are seeing around you representative of your brand values? Do your premises reflect your innovation or efficiency; would you do business with your organisation? You might know you are the best, but is this substantiated by the surroundings?
