New energy from Battersea
The Battersea district of London is industrial and rather unpeopled compared to the northern bank of the Thames, yet step through the doors of Battersea Studios and your perception is altered. Inside you’ll find Le Bureau, one of the city’s busiest and most inviting shared workspaces, stylishly decorated and buzzing with energy.
Unprepared for workplace changes
More and more companies are facing major changes in the way they operate their workspaces, but are not doing enough to prepare themselves for it. These are the results of a study that also shows that the majority of new jobs are created on the basis of trust and networks.
