The TSK Business Engagement Centre (based at Sheffield Hallam University’s Sheffield Business School) helps shape the workplace of the future. When it comes to the construction of new workspaces this important living research project helps develop and test concept worksettings and work behaviours which leads to informed design and best practice.
Our joint aim is to help organisations understand the value of using the workplace as a business tool to:
Achieve organisational transformation
Create better places for working
Opening up new ways of working
The Centre creates a gateway for decision-makers to engage with academic innovation and practical application.
TSK’s and Sheffield Business School’s joint approach is to create, manage and measure work settings that outperform the norm.
It will act as a hub for decision-makers to discuss their needs, explore, discover, innovate and manage a new way of working that will deliver a competitive advantage for their organisations.
Decision-makers, under the guidance of an academic, will be able to engage with the Alchemy programme, to help:
Quantify their organisation’s needs
Carry out research
Develop workplace management coaching programmes

The ‘Business School without Walls’
As home to the Business School’s executive it embodies its vision to be the ‘Business School without Walls’. Here business engagement is the focal point and staff and students are empowered to enjoy the freedom, responsibility and trust within an activity-based work setting.
The Centre also serves as the base for The Centre of Facilities Management Development (CFMD) team.
CFMD support a series of conferences and coaching workshops for facility managers to help make space more productive and cost effective.
TSK Business Engagement Centre also hosts Thought Leaders workshops where invited entrepreneurs set out the issues facing organisations and assess their future workspace needs.
The output from these sessions is fed back into the innovation lab and solutions investigated and mapped out.
