There was much excitement in the BHP Perth office with the go-live of the Dynamic Working Pilot space which was delivered recently.
The pilot, initially involving 60 participants across a number of teams, has been set up to test a number of critical elements including the desking system and share ratio, the range of collaborative settings provided, the IT docking solution, workplace behavioural elements and the change management programme.
Early feedback has been positive, particularly in relation to the provision of sit-to-stand desks, the range and uses of the collaborative spaces and the functionality of the lockers.
Feedback continues to be gathered through a range of activities, including focus groups, feedback sessions and floor tours.
The Pilot Space and the feedback received will be used to inform and influence the future implementation of Dynamic Working at BHP Perth.
BGIS were pleased to be the Principal Sponsor and Host for this year’s Facilities Management Association (FMA) Wine & Cheese night in Sydney. With an attendance of in excess of 100 Industry representatives, it was great night filled with opportunities for the team to network with the Industry colleagues and share experiences.
With the new World Square renovations and fitout being completed recently, it was great to be able to showcase the office and have a larger event space now holding double the previous capacity.
Adam Sheppard (Estimator BGIS & FMA NSW Committee representative.) gave a welcome introduction, and then handed over to Jon McCormick (President & Managing Director BGIS) who spoke about the company, opportunities and the future.
Next year will be 20 years of operating for BGIS and 30 years for the FMA, a significant amount of time for both. Shane McIntosh the Chairman for FMA, NSW also spoke on opportunities and the future for the Facilities Management industry.
