Hybrid and remote-first work is here to stay. Reopening offices, shifting expectations, and advancements in technology and communication have led many companies and their employees to reevaluate what it truly means to “get stuff done.” With the right fit-out project management services, your team can thrive in any type of workplace. Your fit-out specialist will supply your company with the tools and knowledge you need to ease into remote/hybrid work seamlessly.

What Are Fit-Out Project Management Services?

Transitioning out of the office requires several steps. And staying on top of it alongside your ever-evolving workload can be challenging. At Lavoro Consulting, we offer fit-out project management services so you and your team can stay focused on day-to-day operations without feeling overwhelmed by your transition. Here’s how:

Budget and Schedule Management

Office fit-out projects can be costly—especially without proper planning. We’ll work with you to create an accurate budget and appropriate benchmarks to ensure you adhere to your transitional plan. We understand how big of an expense the transition to hybrid work environments can be for businesses so we’ll do everything in our power to avoid unexpected costs. We’ll also outline a fit-out schedule to ensure all projects remain on target and on time.

Furniture Management

Whether you’re moving offices or redesigning your current space with new furniture, Lavoro is here to help manage all the moving pieces. We’ll help optimize your physical space with any existing furniture and select pieces that will elevate your space and increase employee efficiency.

Move Management

Moving offices is no walk in the park. It’s often a huge undertaking that requires proactive planning months—if not years—in advance. If you’re feeling at all overwhelmed about an upcoming office move, we’re here to help. We’ve worked with hundreds of small and medium-sized businesses to support their successful and seamless relocations. With every move, our goal is to make it as stress-free of an experience as possible.

Tips on Project Management in the Remote/Hybrid Workplace

Here are our top tips for transitioning to the hybrid (both office and remote) workplace.

Encourage Strong Communication

Clearly identify your team’s communication channels for different tasks. It can be easy for things to get lost in translation when everyone is in their own private workplace.

Make Expectations Explicit

In the remote/hybrid workplace, there is more flexibility for employees and their needs. But make sure your team is clearly aware of what is expected of them.

Provide Ongoing Technical Training

Advancements in technology have made hybrid teams more efficient than ever before. However, technology can and will become more complex. That’s why you need to consistently provide technology training at onboarding and on an ongoing basis to keep your workers up-to-date.
