A Peek Inside Grant Thornton’s Cool Sussex Office
Grant Thornton, one of the largest professional services network of independent accounting and consulting member firms, providing assurance, tax and advisory services, recently hired workplace design firm Area to design their new offices in Sussex, England.
“Giving access to clients, partners and staff alike, Grant Thornton’s new workspace facilitates a number of flexible working and meeting opportunities. Supporting a new way of working, front-of-house amenities offer a range of work settings from formal meeting and training rooms to informal pods and lounge seating areas. The back-of-house area has been divided into sit-stand desking and informal breakout space, encouraging movement and collaboration between teams. The large breakout area can be used throughout the working day for a variety of functions including meetings, client presentations, as well as a place for employees to socialise over lunch. To further support their new agile working model, each employee has been provided with a locker meaning each employee has been given sufficient storage space whilst not getting a set desk,” says Area
