CORPORATE WORKPLACE STRATEGIES
Covid-19 and the needs and desires of Millennials and Generation Z have irrevocably changed how corporations need to engage with their employees and the environments in which they can ask them to work. Many corporations are unsure of how best to develop an employee-centric, flexible workplace strategy. Deco develops strategies and plans that leverage existing offices, work from home options and shared office space. Our goal is to ensure corporations offer employees the opportunity to work in multiple, convenient locations that make health and safety a priority.

Once technology is in place, we help hire and train staff, preparing your on-the-ground team for launch and beyond.
