The workplace has changed with a new generation of workers infiltrating the workforce. Access to office fitouts (otherwise known as pods or focus spaces) is now the most desired office perk, ranking higher in employee preferences than private offices.
Employers need to stay ahead of the curve by converting open-office floor plans to be more versatile, modular, accessible, and functional. With the addition of office fitouts within a workspace, all of that is possible and more.

Office Fitout Benefits
As the workplace evolves, more and more workers desire a space that is flexible and practical. Open offices and cubicles are no longer attractive to employees. Fitouts improve workspace efficiency because they:
- Block out sound to reduce office noise
- Are perfect for conference calls
- Provide excellent area for small teams to meet and brainstorm
- Lower the stress levels of employees and improve their wellbeing
- Are great places for neurodivergent employees to work
- Can be moved within an office space or even taken with you if you relocate – cutting out the cost of office refurbishments
YOURspace office fitouts are completely modular, so you can create a productive office culture anywhere you choose.
