How collaborative working can have a transformative impact

23 March 2023

In today’s modern way of working, a business park must adapt and evolve to create an environment that actively promotes collaboration, productivity and innovation.

Here at Birchwood Park, we’ve dedicated ourselves to foster a community-led workplace that offers a wide range of pioneering amenities specifically designed to enhance the wellbeing and productivity of each employee based here.

As the park is home to more than 6,000 people from 165 companies, our status as the North West’s largest out-of-town business destination has enabled us to create some of the best-in-class meeting and events facilities in the North West region, as well as flexible co-working spaces fit for businesses of any size.

This is why we can guarantee that businesses can expect more at Birchwood Park. Our philosophy is to help all occupiers empower their employees by providing them with state-of-the-art facilities and ready-made wellbeing initiatives.

Collaborative Working

Due to the fast-paced nature of the way we now work, collaborative working is essential. However, to experience the long-lasting benefits it offers depends heavily on the flexibility and adaptability of the workspace provided.

At Birchwood Park, we have extensive experience in creating an inclusive working environment that can cater to the needs of businesses in a variety of sectors. Our workspace can evolve to meet even the most specific demands, ensuring that all of our occupiers can fully benefit from collaborative working.

With open plan office space, communal breakout areas, and array of meeting rooms have been deliberately designed to facilitate interaction, communication, and collaboration, we know how working in close proximity encourages teams, business leaders and clients alike, to share experiences, ideas and in an open forum.

Taking this approach has been essential in creating a strong sense of community and positive working culture, which sits at the heart of everything we do at Birchwood Park.

Benefits of Flexible Working Spaces

Flexible working is a key component of all employees working at Birchwood Park, and our offering has been created with this in mind. With our entire site capable of providing as many versatile workspace options as possible, we are confident that no matter the space required we can deliver on comfort and connectivity.

In addition to conventional workspace, we have also curated pioneering amenities to not only support the workplace wellbeing of our occupiers, but also deliver memorable flexible working moments.

With high quality food and drink options from the EngineRooms, as well as expansive green spaces, employees are given all what they need to; spark an innovative idea, develop their creative thinking, collaborate with their team outside the office or to even impress their own clients when visiting Birchwood Park.

It is our commitment to providing the very best flexible working offering in the North West that has garnered the interest of regional, national and international businesses, whom are all continuing to thrive and grow in the same space here at Birchwood Park.

Regardless of sector or industry, flexible working at Birchwood Park offers a range of long lasting benefits such as:

  • Increased Productivity: By providing a flexible and comfortable workspace, employees are able to work more efficiently and effectively. They have access to a range of amenities, including high-speed internet, modern technology, and comfortable furniture, which can help to boost their productivity and creativity.
  • Better Work-Life Balance: Flexible working spaces can help employees find a more sustainable work-life balance between their work and personal lives. With the option to work remotely or flexibly, employees can better manage their time and commitments, reducing stress and improving their overall wellbeing.
  • Collaboration: By providing a range of collaborative spaces, businesses can encourage teamwork, idea sharing, and knowledge exchange. This can lead to more innovative ideas, improved problem-solving, and greater business success.

Value of Coming into the Office

Although flexible or hybrid working often enables employees to work from home, we at Birchwood Park consistently see the value of working in the office and embracing modern workplace practices.

Firstly, it is evident that frequent face-to-face interactions are vital to building a sense of community, strengthening relationships between team members and creating a positive company culture.

Working from home can not only prevent those more personable relationships from forming, but it can also put employees at risk of blurring the lines between their work and personal lives. By coming into the office even just for part of the week, employees are able to separate work from home life, creating a healthier work-life balance and avoid burning out or a reduction in productivity.

Most importantly, bringing people together in a physical space for collaborative work can cultivate important conversations, generate new ideas and enhance employee development, which ultimately lead to more creative, innovative and unique thinking.

The possibilities really are endless. Our community-led workplace experience will not only enhance collaboration, productivity, and wellbeing in the workplace, but our flexible and collaborative workplace offering helps businesses unlock the full potential of their teams and achieve long-term success.
