About us

We are a not-for-profit organisation created specifically to stimulate and share better ways of working that lead to enhanced performance, higher levels of innovation and better working lives.

Our unique, accredited approach builds on a robust evidence-base, helping your change leaders and managers acquire the knowledge, skills and resources required to achieve successful, systematic and sustainable transformation, supported by practical in-house facilitation and coaching.

Our approach combines hard, evidence-based argument with the ability to stimulate and engage diverse business audiences. We work with leading international universities and research institutes to capture and analyse leading practice, and to translate it into practical tools and learning resources for organisations. Workplace Innovation is an accredited provider for the Institute for Leadership & Management (ILM).

We have worked with diverse business and public sector clients including Acas, Argenta, Aviva, British Council, BT, BWB, Charles River, Cornerstone, E.ON, European Commission, GE Mining, Leonardo, Liberty Steel, Nottingham City Council, Orbit Housing Group, Saint-Gobain, Scottish Enterprise, Skills Development Scotland and the South Korean Government.

Since 2013 we have co-led the European Workplace Innovation Network (EUWIN), established by the European Commission to spread knowledge and awareness of workplace innovation amongst businesses. EUWIN’s Knowledge Bank, established and curated by us, includes several hundred case studies and articles of value to people leading change, and achieves many thousand hits per month. We created a unique portfolio of films to inspire and inform change leaders, and are the authors of The Essential Fifth Element, an actionable guide to workplace transformation supported by a robust body of evidence, case studies and practical resources.

In 2016 we launched Fresh Thinking Labs, a unique Online and In-Person platform for knowledge sharing and collaboration between organisations. Members enjoy bespoke introductions to others with similar interests and challenges, an online search and connect facility, open and closed online communities, and several opportunities to meet their peers through company visits and workshops.

“Rosemary and Peter from Workplace Innovation have taken all participants on a learning journey. Their programme has been excellent for learning from other organisations who strive to improve in their own business. The content of the programme has varied greatly and been geared to ensure all organisations gain something from the experience. For Cornerstone, we are introducing a new business model called Local Cornerstone and this programme has certainly helped guide and support us as we commence our three years Strategic Plan to bring transformational change to Cornerstone and the Care Sector.”

Mairi Martin, Cornerstone
