“Workplace Strategy delivers a high-level framework across people, place and technology, that gives the client and the designer immense strength and confidence in the decisions they’re making.”
Sarah Bryant is a senior workplace strategist and experienced commercial designer. She has a unique perspective on the world of workplace strategy. Having practiced as a designer of commercial interiors for over 13 years, both internationally and in NZ, she’s a specialist that understands the true demands of translating client needs into successful workplace environments. Sarah is Jasmax’s workplace strategy lead, working within an integrated architecture and interior design commercial team to deliver an end-to-end service for all commercial and workplace developments. Sarah is also the practice’s specialist in design strategies for creating environments that support and enhance occupant health and wellbeing.
Over the last few years, Sarah has worked with leading public and private sector organisations to devise workplace strategies that provide the flexibility and adaptability to prepare them for the future. Her role has bridged between Jasmax and its subsidiary company NotYetKnown, delivering integrated solutions for Fonterra, Minter Ellison Rudd Watts, Kiwi Property and Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research. Sarah is respected for her ability to hear the client needs and translate that into a tangible outcome that reflects the business and its people.
Moving into a new era for workplace strategy at Jasmax, Sarah has led the integration of NotYetKnown’s evolved workplace strategy methodology back into Jasmax’s core workplace offering. NotYetKnown has been placed into stasis until the next big business challenge comes along.
“The most successful workplaces are the ones that respond to the people living in them. The offices where there are a range of different spaces where the business and its people have everything they need – to work, learn and celebrate together – all in a single environment. A workplace strategy at the outset of a new workplace design can make sure everything is considered and aligned. That’s the cost-effective value a well-designed workplace can offer a business in the long-run.”
