Business Spotlight: Engage Workplace

We recently sat down with Vince Brooks, Director, to learn more about the Plymouth business Engage Workplace.

Engage Workplace creates engagement through people centred office design refurbishment and fit outs. It was great to hear how they have been supporting businesses to be more agile and mobile in workplace design post-COVID and the fantastic work they are doing to reduce their carbon footprint by introducing a new proactive and innovative service that recycles redundant furniture and packaging.
