PeopleSpace | February 03, 2022

On February 2nd, PeopleSpace, a prominent provider of workspace strategy, office furniture solutions, and custom products, launched a return-to-office campaign called “Let's Talk People, Let's Talk Space 2022.” The campaign is aimed at guiding companies and employees who have become pandemic-weary, back to the work place.

PeopleSpace responded to West Coast employers by developing a customized workplace setting that addresses the increasing demand for workplace wellness and flexibility. PeopleSpace has been working with clients across industries like gaming, entertainment, law, real estate, and healthcare to revisit workplace environments and reimagine them for the post-pandemic return to the office.

PeopleSpace has also appointed new leaders. Gynjer Peck is the new chief design and experience officer. She formerly worked as a design director for the organization.

"The office in 2022 and beyond needs to have a purpose and meaning. Employees are asking for work-life balance and a feeling of belonging, so they feel comfortable and motivated to return."

- Gynjer Peck

Further, Pamela Escobedo has been promoted to the position of chief logistics officer. Her new position will see her overseeing installation services, project coordination, and quality assurance. Michael Fisher will assume the position of workplace strategist.

"Now more than ever, it's important to be intentional about emphasizing company culture and values within the workspace. We're guiding our clients down this exciting path and collaborating together to create workplace ecosystems that support employee productivity and well-being."

- Brian Airth, PeopleSpace's co-founder and chief business development office.

U.K. Essential Services Provider Selects UKG to Support Rapid Growth, Empower Its 10,000-Employee Workforce

UKG | May 21, 2022

UKG, a leading provider of HR, payroll, and workforce management solutions for all people, announced today that M Group Services, one of the largest essential infrastructure services organizations in the U.K. and Ireland, has selected UKG Dimensions to support its rapid growth and provide a more transparent and empowering employee experience. M Group Services employs more than 10,000 skilled specialists and provides services within the water, energy, transport, and telecommunications sectors. With 240 locations, 19 operating businesses, and continued growth by acquisition, the organization sought a flexible workforce management solution to support its complex and highly remote workforce as well as improve productivity and operational efficiency. “We have a mix of salaried and hourly employees, including meter readers, utility workers, field systems technicians, and engineers — many who work offsite each day. There’s also a lot of complexity in our business and how we pay people based on the type of work they do, For years, we’ve relied on spreadsheets to capture the hours our employees work, which has proved to be a cumbersome and inaccurate operation. Dimensions will automate those processes to ensure we’re getting the data right and paying our people correctly. Dimensions will empower our people to be in control of their time by allowing them to record their hours directly in the system, In turn, that will give us much-needed, real-time visibility into labor hours so we can charge clients correctly and ensure every employee paycheck is accurate.” -Colin Jellicoe, group human resources director at M Group Services. A key driver for the organization’s selection of Dimensions is the ability to integrate with the company’s payroll solution, which M Group Services estimates will save more than $1 million in administrative costs. Jellicoe added that the Dimensions mobile app will deliver a more transparent and engaging experience for all employees, which is critically important to the organization. M Group Services believes the increase in employee engagement will result in an increase in retention. About UKG At UKG, our purpose is people. As strong believers in the power of culture and belonging as the secret to success, we champion great workplaces and build lifelong partnerships with our customers to show what’s possible when businesses invest in their people. Born from a historic merger that created one of the world’s leading HCM cloud companies, our Life-work Technology approach to HR, payroll, and workforce management solutions for all people helps more than 70,000 organizations around the globe and across every industry anticipate and adapt to their employees’ needs beyond just work.
