With that in mind, the offices of Deloitte LLP recently moved to 767-801 15th Street East in Prince Albert.
While maintaining the Deloitte values, implementing this workplace change is driving a very positive cultural shift. This cultural change, paired with new ways of working and the deployment of new technology, was initially challenging but our team has embraced the changes and are enjoying the new space and the new ways of working.
The new space uses technology to allow our people to work in different ways. Each on-site work station has a docking station and dual monitors. The monitors are adjustable height and orientation, which provide flexibility for work. The docking station provides laptop power and a wired network connection. Some work stations have stand-up desks with adjustable heights.
Air Media is used in the meeting room to permit wireless content sharing on LED screen. This permits us to share our laptop in meetings and presentations and has proved useful for client discussions and presentations. Up to four people can share on the same screen. Clients can also connect to the LED screen.
The work environment is agile and flexible. Our people are able to dock their laptop in any of the docks and use the space that works best for teaming with others based on project demands. We have moved from traditional assignment of space to using appropriate space as needed.
We have also implemented a paper-lite work environment, which reduces the general use of paper. We are storing files electronically in a centralized location, using OneNote to take notes electronically and sharing files electronically with team members. These changes have resulted in a less cluttered work environment, and provide opportunities to access information from remote locations. This has improved our access to information and allowed our people to be flexible with their work location based on different needs. Many of our people take the opportunity to work remotely and this has created a very flexible work environment, which our people appreciate.
The new space includes work areas for individuals to complete tasks requiring concentration; areas to support creativity and knowledge sharing and a casual area, which provides a relaxed environment for making connections with colleagues.
At Deloitte, we are known in the market for our innovative and effective approach to client service excellence. We are applying this approach to redeveloping our work environments across the country, and redefining the way we work and engage with each other and with our clients.
