Time Inc UK
Campus rationalisation introducing agile working
At a time of significant digital disruption for the UK publishing industry, Time Inc. UK* asked tp bennett to address its future workplace strategy and workspace needs as it embarked on its transformation from a traditional print-based publishing house to a more dynamic multi-platform business.
Working closely with the CEO and the executive board, we were tasked with developing an initial feasibility report to review the opportunities to evolve the company’s current way of working, space usage and overall real estate footprint in line with its platform-neutral future. With the go ahead from the board, we engaged with the wider business to develop its new way of working.
The proposals included the introduction of agile working practises, the improvement of brand imagery and a better employee experience, with a view to enhancing collaboration, sharing resources and improving flexibility and efficiency across the company.
tp bennett continued to support Time Inc. UK throughout the design and delivery of the fit out/refurbishment of new and existing space, as well as being instrumental in the communication and change management process to implement the new way of working.
The outcome was a hugely improved working environment that buzzes with energy, alongside a rationalisation of the campus that achieved a 40,000sq ft space saving.
