Happy New Year from Standing Space
January 01, 2021
2020 was an uncertain time with lots of unknowns
Standing Space powered through the year helping large and local clients to design spaces that were not only aesthetically pleasing, but also in line with COVID-19 policies and new ways of working.
Although we got through 2020 with many positive memories to reflect on, it wasn’t always easy. As a business that relies heavily on face to face communication and design consultation with team members, the combination of working in the office and then having to work from home or not being able to meet on site with clients proved difficult on some occasions.
Tips that Standing space find useful whilst working from home
Frequent Facetime calls with employees not only to discuss work, but to maintain the office culture whist working from home
It’s ok to say ‘NO’ to client meetings during these difficult times.
Weekly updates on how the busines is doing so that employees can stay in the loop and have a sense of security
Seize online opportunities. A chance to become more active on social media and communicate with a wider audience
Plan for the future by reflecting on missed opportunities and building skills that can help with the year ahead
Now that we’re in 2021, as a business Standing Space look forward to designing spaces that are Innovative, exciting and safe to use. We plan to build stronger networks with our clients and use 2020 as stepping stone for a better, stronger and thought through year ahead
