Assent Prepares for Future of Workspaces

ISO Consultants Assent have announced a new campus address as part of preparations to open COVID-Secure workspaces when lock-down restrictions ease.

 

Assent on Campus

Assent’s Central Admin team will now be based at the CEME Campus in Rainham, London.

The facilities at CEME Campus provide excellent support for our growing consultancy, training and tech services with 1Gb Broadband, meeting rooms, classrooms and fully equipped workshops.

The campus also facilitates much safer physical distancing and COVID-Secure measures for when the central admin team returns to an office environment.

Assent plans to develop its operations at Campus further in the future.

 

Other Workspaces

Our locations at London Liverpool Street and Cardiff Gate remain available and will provide workspace and meeting facilities for our team where needed.

In addition, we have identified several other locations in the UK to provide additional workspaces to support our teams in those areas, and these will be opened in response to changes in Government guidance.

 

Localisation & Remote Working

Implementing this central campus, with additional workspaces across the country, provides a new approach to Assent’s physical presence and supports the industry’s recent move towards remote consultancy and auditing; which has many benefits including reduced carbon footprint and increased availability of consultants, auditors and trainers.

Our people are already distributed across the UK, with many working from home, allowing us to provide local resources for clients, however Assent will continue to support secure remote working wherever possible.

Ready for a New Way of Working

Robert Clements, Director at Assent said:

We were well placed to manage the disruption caused by Coronavirus [in 2020] as we already had the ability to work securely from home. Our IT infrastructure moved to reliable cloud providers some years ago.

In fact during the lockdown we were still taking on new projects and helping customers achieve ISO Remotely.

But while we have enabled all of our people to continue working from home in the future, we also recognise that our teams and clients still need somewhere to meet and collaborate in person.

Our new Campus Office together with Workspaces around the country will meet that need.

Assent continues to monitor the impact of government guidance on it’s operations.
