Broadening Horizons 2017

07 April 2017. News.

Kingston University and Peldon Rose began work on their second Broadening Horizons project in January 2017, which is a 4-month programme designed to engage students with SME’s to gain a new insight into developing their skills and talents.

Following on from the success of last year, from which Peldon Rose gained some valuable insights into technology in the workplace, this year’s Broadening Horizons programme worked in two different groups as independent consultants to explore some of the topics and trends businesses need to address and offer a new perspective on these ideas.

This year’s initiative challenged the students to conduct interviews, surveys and extensive research into two different topics; serviced offices and generations in the workplace. Throughout this process the students have led engaging sessions that helps enhance their professional skills as well as presenting detailed research about their findings. The students worked with some of our clients to gain an insight to the workplace and Office Space in Town gave great support to the project and added unique value to the students' research.

One of the students, Rana Yigitbasi, who was exploring generations in the workplace said that "Working with Peldon Rose through the Broadening Horizons has been a great experience where my team and I have learned about different generations in the workplace and the challenges office design has to overcome. I really enjoyed working with Peldon Rose, who have been very supportive throughout the project."

Benjamin Murray, Spokesperson for Peldon Rose said: “We were pleased to support Kingston University again this year and with the two groups we have seen a real development in them as individuals. Their reports and final research has given us a fascinating insight into the workplace and current market, so their ideas and recommendations will be useful to our strategies going forward. As the next generation in the workplace, their insight is a valuable resource to our ever-changing industry.”
