As a business, Sodexo were committed to reducing real estate by 50% at their flagship office, in a prime central London location. Sodexo’s existing locale boasted 24,000 feet of space, which they wanted to be used in the most optimal way, offering a more streamlined office experience for both employees and visitors alike.
Support and collaboration were paramount, to ensure the smooth transition of the workplace transformation within the short and stringent timeline of six weeks.
With Sodexo possessing multiple sites across various countries and regions, a consistent and scalable solution was also required – one that had the scope to organically expand across Sodexo’s portfolio, with the capability to enhance workspaces, and fulfil the need of showcasing innovation to Sodexo’s clients.
“We worked with Condeco to improve our own workspace technology solutions, as well as demonstrating to our own customers how they can improve their workspaces.”
— Richard Priestly, Sodexo
Condeco identified the need for an enhanced solution that would enable Sodexo to move to a fully-integrated, more flexible environment. This included the implementation of meeting room booking and desk booking software, to support Sodexo’s agile workforce. Condeco moved Sodexo to the cloud, where the pressure of their existing IT resources could be relieved, securing the success of their new software.
Condeco’s project management team were ingrained into Sodexo’s working groups, incorporating all key stakeholders from across the business, and ensuring the success of the project. The utilization of Condeco desk booking solution meant that Sodexo could better manage their desk to people ratio, and reduce a further 5,000 square feet from their existing space.
Condeco were onsite during the crucial implementation period, including a pop-up shop day, where experts were on hand to introduce Sodexo employees to new workplace technology. Employees received a customised and personal welcome induction pack to their new agile working space.
