Hybrid Flexible Collaborative Innovative Working Model
On 13th March 2020, the old Evoke office closed its doors, and everyone moved to remote home-working for the foreseeable future. As the Covid pandemic raged on it was clear the traditional landscape of office-based working would be forever changed, with large physical office spaces soon being a thing of the past.
When we slowly started to return to the office last summer, it became apparent that many of our team preferred the new hybrid model of working that we had adopted. The increased autonomy had allowed our team the freedom to choose where and when they wanted to work, enabling them to benefit from an enhanced work-life balance. It also contributed to decreasing the environmental and financial impacts of commuting and allowed team members to be more productive which in turn led to increased job satisfaction.
Whilst there are many benefits to remote working, we also understood that not everyone wanted to move to pure remote working model. After consultation with the team it was clear that some still wanted the option to come into the office to have some much need social or collaboration time with their colleagues, so we didn’t want to give up our physical office space completely.
Hybrid working is now the “new normal” for Evoke, and our new office in HEC provides the perfect space for our team members to come together at a time that suits them. With modern, open-plan offices, invaluable business support, a very exciting meeting room which features Ayrton Senna’s Lotus mounted to the ceiling and, most importantly for our Development Team, free coffee on tap, HEC was the perfect fit for the Evoke Team. We look forward to welcoming our customers at Hethel Engineering Centre soon.
