UAE fit-out firm launches workplace performance report

DUBAI, December 10, 2018

UAE-based Summertown Interiors, a leading fit-out contractor specialising in green interiors, joined its global partners from The United Workplace (TUW), at Worktech18 London to discuss its new collaborative report – The Puzzle of Productivity – which focuses on key factors that contribute to enhancing workplace performance.
The ‘Puzzle of Productivity’ report was developed by Fourfront Group and TUW in partnership with Worktech Academy - the global online platform and community for the future of work and workplace.

The research for the report was based on participants from organisations in the UK, US, Australia, South America and UAE, as well as via Worktech’s global network.

The report explores the parameters of the subject of workplace performance by presenting the results and implications on key factors and attitudes around driving up performance in the global workplace.

Results found that more than half of respondents surveyed (53 per cent) named leadership as the most important factor in raising organisational performance.

Less than a fifth of respondents named environment, technology or wellness as being the most important factor. Environment came second to leadership, but a long way behind on 18 per cent of the survey.

Commenting on the findings, Marcos Bish, the managing director of Summertown Interiors, said: "The report highlights leadership as the top factor influencing productivity, but importantly there are key strategic areas that need to work in conjunction with leadership to boost performance."

The findings of the survey present a number of ideas for organisations interested in improving employee productivity.

"As companies seek to integrate the major drivers of productivity – leadership, environment, technology and wellness – there is an urgent and growing priority for more holistic and joined-up thinking in workplace strategy," noted Bish.

"As mentioned in the report, the working environment is one that enhances productivity and goes beyond the merely functional," he added.

For 20 Years, Summertown Interiors has been among the UAE’s leading and most sustainable contractors, offering superior quality interior fit-out solutions.

Reputed for its green expertise and exceptional client service, the company specialises in commercial, healthcare, and education projects for global Fortune 500 companies, government authorities and local businesses, said the company in its statement.

Summertown Interiors was the first fit-out contractor to occupy LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certified interiors in the UAE, and has also been awarded key  certification for its existing building; operations and maintenance (LEED EBOM).

All projects are executed in accordance with the internationally recognised ISO 9001:2008 quality management system, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
