Less than ideal staff dining facilities can have a knock-on effect on staff morale, but not at the headquarters of two renowned Yorkshire brands.
The team behind Bettys&Taylors of Harrogate recently enlisted the expertise of Saltaire-based AgileAcoustics, who set to work to create a winning experience for colleagues.
Bettys&Taylors of Harrogate, known for its tradition and high-quality products, were keen to ensure staff could benefit from a relaxing environment during their breaks. Enter AgileAcoustics, who updated its dining room with its AgileCLOUD innovation, providing a ‘feast for the senses’, thanks to its high-quality aesthetic and noise-cancelling properties.
The suspended, upholstered acoustic ceiling panels were introduced to improve the room’s acoustics – and the result was happier colleagues, owing to a hugely improved space.
Stuart Jones, AgileAcoustics’ CEO, explained: “Regular breaks in a relaxing environment can significantly increase wellbeing and productivity. Our AgileCLOUDs not only brighten up spaces with their unique design but, more importantly, they dramatically enhance acoustics in notoriously noisy areas like canteens.”
Captivating, Cloud-shaped Design
The captivating cloud-shaped design of AgileCLOUDs was an instant hit for the teams at Bettys&Taylors of Harrogate. Designed and hand-crafted with precision in AgileAcoustics’ Salts Mill workshop, the panels are available in an array of colours, shapes, and sizes, allowing for tailored solutions for every space.
The introduction of the panels into the shared dining area of both brands has significantly reduced sound reverberation, echo, and the usual clamour of a busy canteen.
“The results have been striking,” added Stuart. “Beyond just enhancing the aesthetics, we’ve been able to create a soothing environment where the team at Bettys&Taylors can genuinely relax. This project underscores our commitment to marrying design and functionality.”
