A self-assessment to establish whether you are best suited for home, office or hybrid working

Are you or your employees?

  • Struggling to settle into hybrid working and how to get it right
  • Resentful about going back into the office as your performance skyrocketed working from home
  • Feeling lonely and isolated in your home working space
  • Looking for ways to retain your employees
  • Finding it hard to stay focused
  • Struggling to navigate different workspaces
  • Irritated by your current workspace
  • Unsure whether you want to or should go back to the office
  • Need to know what your “sweet spot” is for working
  • Distracted and unproductive in your workspace
  • Wanting easy, simple, and effective strategies to be productive
  • Worried about your mental health and wellbeing
  • Not reaching your full potential and believing you can be more successful at life and work

How do you benefit?

  • Be more accurate in allocating hybrid workspaces for the right people at the right time – everyone has a “sweet spot” 
  • Use baseline sensory wiring, which is core DNA, as a guideline to decide who will work best from home, the office, or hybrid 
  • Increase productivity and deliver higher-quality work for longer periods of time 
  • Reduce distractions to enable better focus, concentration, and energy 
  • Promote self-management and self-regulation
  • Enforce a culture of flexibility and be people-focused in order to improve day-to-day business efficiency 
  • Reduce stress and anxiety and promote workplace health and wellbeing
  • Improve your hybrid culture and become the employer of choice 
  • Invest in your employees to grow your business 
  • Make more money and save more time

How is Senses@Work™ different?

  • Senses@Work™ is a sensory processing test: it measures how intensely people respond to environmental stimuli based on their neurological thresholds – we are measuring basic DNA and behaviour patterns – no other tools measure this 
  • No other assessment or tool considers sensory processing for choosing the best-fit workspaces and workplace productivity
  • It is not a personality test because we believe extraversion/introversion is not the best guideline to decide if people should work from home or the office
  • Senses@Work™ provides an easy and straightforward view of your best-suited workspace and how to be more productive
  • There is NO right or wrong – your scores will explain how you are wired to unconsciously respond to sensory stimuli and how this influences your daily workspace navigation
  • Sensory processing is constant and works in the background without us even noticing it. It is an automatic process that facilitates either comfort or stress in any work environment 
  • It considers daily attention, emotion, and behaviour from a bottom-up, lower-brain focus which is different from other assessment tools
  • It provides an innovative and sophisticated way of matching people with workspaces for the new world of work
  • Developed by Dr. Annemarie Lombard, who holds a Ph.D. in Occupational Therapy (Health Sciences), and based on 30 years of clinical and training experience and research
  • It is rooted in neuroscience and occupational therapy but applies interdisciplinary research, insights, and solutions

It provides information that our clients can implement regardless of their current stage of illness.
