What is Performance +?

Performance + is a strategic business service that

enables you to understand, articulate and optimise

the relationship between your people, your processes and your property. With an emphasis on listening, learning, leading and sharing, Performance + can

help to deliver sustainable business value through a

transformation in the way people work and how

space can be used (often referred to as ‘modern

methods of working’ or ‘flexible’ working).



Reaching the holy grail of improved

staff performance against fewer costs

With staff costs equating to around 80% of corporate expenditure (and property just 8%) it is clear that the greatest investment impact is to be gained in creating inspiring environments that benefit your critical

asset and cost item i.e. your staff.

Evidence suggests that a 1% improvement in productivity can be more than a 30% reduction in the cost of your property.


Performance + is about ensuring you have..., tomorrow and into the future

What difference will Performance + make?

Organisations are in a continual state of flux

and subject to changes driven by economics,

demographics, technology and the environment. The need to become more agile, flexible, resilient

and responsive to change is greater than ever

but the drivers for change are varied, complex

and unique to every organisation. However,

the benefits of taking a holistic view of your

company are significant and can include:

  • Improved staff performance (and productivity) against fewer costs

  • Improved job satisfaction, staff retention and recruitment

  • Reduced energy usage and associated running and maintenance costs

  • Positive cultural, physical and technological change

  • Strengthened corporate brand & identity

  • Future, ‘spaceless’ growth

  • Improve integration of business processes & property in supporting the way people work

How does

Performance + work?

Performance + positions your organisation at the heart

of the project, the outcome of a project is not necessarily a new building but a transformation of the way people work and how space can be used. Our service seeks to get under the skin of your organisation (i.e. your vision, strategy, processes, people and property) and we have developed our own unique tools and methodologies (including research, auditing, facilitation, interviews, questionnaires, workshops and benchmarking) to
carry out this work. This process enables us to:

  • Demystify the process and make the intuitive explicit and measurable

  • Simplify the complex layers of your organisation and make it understandable by all

  • Communicate detailed information in a clear, concise way using a variety of graphic techniques

  • Adopt a pro-active, personal approach to engagement with a focus on listening, learning, leading and sharing

  • Provide a clear audit trail and evidence-base for decision-making and investment

What our clients say

“Performance + has helped us refine our brief to achieve greater efficiencies and savings through our ambitious portfolio rationalisation programme. With the assistance of Performance + we will have moved from 1 person per 24 sqm to 1 person per 8 sqm, along with desk sharing and task based working.” “Performance + has been an integral part of the
Council’s team to develop a Corporate Standard,
Smarter Working Policy and Organisational Fit. This process included engaging with staff and stakeholders to inform the final outcome and ensure it met the Council’s needs.”
