As we slowly move through the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses must consider ‘what’s next’ for the office. In our Office23 solution, the Redefine (2022-2023) stage is where businesses must reflect on this question in more detail. DeVono can help by focusing on three main topics: corporate culture, how to reorganise and refit space, and building a digital toolbox. In the final edition of our Office23 blog series, we look at the elements of the Redefine stage of the Office23 journey.
The Redefine (2022-2023) stage of the Office23 journey is where DeVono can help to redefine what your physical office space means to your business and your employees. At DeVono, we can offer a full suite of real estate solutions from formulating the full strategy, find suitable buildings, and alongside our design and build business, Dthree Studio, we can design ideal layouts as you configure your office space for the future.
Your culture is what holds your business together, and at DeVono, we passionately believe that the office is the physical manifestation of your company culture. In our Office23 offer, DeVono can conduct leadership and employee surveys to understand what your existing and ideal cultures are – then make recommendations for how this has an impact on the purpose of office combined with other employee feedback, working styles and aspirations.
Reorganising and refitting space
Office design has a significant impact on workplace efficiency and engagement. After assessing your different working styles and the extent to which you will be utilising hybrid working, DeVono can guide you by ensuring your office space is suitably designed to foster improved culture and productivity. This assessment could recommend creating different spacing, increasing or decreasing your footprint as necessary.
Building a digital toolbox
Ensuring your office is equipped with the most relevant digital technology is imperative during the Office23 process. By understanding your operational priorities, and cost considerations, DeVono and our partners can assist you in determining what digital tools or proptech solutions are suitable for you in the Redefine stage of the Office23 process.
The journey to Office23
Over the next 18 months, organisations must continue to review their workplace strategy and assess what the office means to them. There is no one-size-fits-all solution in real estate, but DeVono can help you find the optimal workplace solution for your organisation. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the perception of the office, with many questioning its purpose. Yet, the office is here to stay, and a blend of in-person and remote working is likely to be the best solution for most organisations. Our Office23 solution seeks to make an impact on your business and its long-term goals, and DeVono stands ready to assist you every step of the way as you find your optimal working solution and progress towards Office23.

"With the myriad tools available to brokers, for me, the key ingredient to a successful partnership is how acutely our needs are heard and translated into action. The entire team at DeVono deciphered our ambitions with patience, pragmatism and good humour. Not only did they present options that answered the questions I had, they provided alternative directions informed by their local expertise, which, being based in the USA, was vital for me to be able to make solid, well-informed decisions. I would not hesitate to recommend."
"I must also comment that the service received from DeVono has been exemplary. In what I have experienced to be the unpleasant world of estate agency it has been a real joy to work with you. You have been driven, proactive, reliable and extremely quick and responsive. The fact that you are pleasant to work with has been a bonus. Working with DeVono has been one of the very best customer experiences of my business career."
"“We are delighted have found a home at Seven Dials Warehouse and commercial real estate framework that is not just fit-for-purpose now, it enables us space to grow in the future. DeVono has helped us to realise our ambition of providing a sustainable and ‘appropriate’ long term home for the business.”"
"Having appointed DeVono in March 2016 to find our next high profile London office from 2018, we have not been disappointed with their high level of service and meticulous attention to detail from the very first day, through to signing the Agreement for Lease and beyond. They assured us during the tender process that they would be right by our side all the way through and not just appointed to “do the deal” and this is exactly what we received."
"We were very satisfied with the service provided. You helped us find the perfect office to meet our needs and were prompt and effective in negotiating the deal on our behalf."
