The new Northampton location for Reed recruiting specialists provides a truly immersive brand experience
In the early 1960s, Reed pioneered specialist recruitment in the UK, and seven decades on, they have become the world's largest family-run recruitment business, with offices across the UK, Europe, the Middle East and East Asia. For their brand new location, they worked with local furniture suppliers, ACS Office Solutions to create a modern and on-brand space for the Reed employees based out of the Northampton office.
Focussed on creating a truly immersive brand experience, the use of graphics and colour throughout the space were key. Right from the reception, the crisp design along with the bold blue and white logo provide the starting note for the feel of the rest of the space. Large windows allow sunlight to stream into the open-plan offices and is complimented by the light and modern furniture. Working with ACS, we supplied our Mono Desking providing Reed with a robust and modular bench desking system that is not only height-adjustable but features a patented anti-trap finger mechanism. Customized to their design, the blue dividers and grey desk finish blends in with their chosen colour scheme.
The light and minimalist Palisades II provides effective space division between the canteen area and the more focussed bench-desking. Spray lacquered in a purple finish, and accessorized with white alcoves and shelves it allows for an attractive division of space without the need to build walls, creating a more flexible workspace. The ever-essential workplace storage was provided for with our Forte Credenzas, with the same design aesthetics as the banks of lockers.
Although lockers have been a fixture in top offices for years, they are becoming increasingly recognised as a great way to not only greatly enhance the employee experience, but to create a flexible storage solution that can aesthetically divide spaces. Being recruitment specialists themselves, Reed understand the impact of the employee experience, and we worked to provide multiple banks of HotLocker product to provide personal storage for the Reed employees. In a variety of sizes, and customized to their brand colours, the lockers provide staff with an extra layer of flexibility in their office space.
