Deloitte Toronto national Headquarters comprises workplace strategy and interior design services for Deloitte in Canada, setting new workplace standards for the professional services industry. The project’s 420,000 sq ft is home to 4,000 staff, enhancing the business’ recruitment and retention strategies through a podium concept at the base of the tower; this allowed the creation of a six-storey contiguous interior atrium as the heart for the organisation. Besides helping people to physically connect, the large nature of the landings encourage them to stop on or near the stairs for choreographed, yet impromptu conversations. This fosters greater connectivity among staff, improves employee engagement and elevates levels of cross-selling, as well as heightening the experience of being part of Deloitte. This highly connected workplace features 18 bespoke spaces for all types of work in a truly multidisciplinary firm, through four guiding principles: Deloitte on Display, Future Flexibility, Linked Landscape and Wellness Workplace.
