About Workframe

Office design isn’t a perk — it’s essential to your team's success. We believe creating your perfect workplace should be simple.

Our Story

Workframe was founded by a team of serial entrepreneurs who believe traditional office design is too time consuming, difficult and expensive for small and medium-sized businesses. We created Workframe to help our clients through one of the least understood and most complex aspects of managing a business: designing an office environment that enhances productivity, promotes wellness and reinforces culture.

Our Culture

-

Culture is at the center of everything we do. Workframe's DESIGN principles reflect how we work with clients and each other.

  • *

    Diligent

    We make informed, data-driven decisions wherever possible. We make commitments and follow through. We strive for perfection because our clients demand it.

  • *

    Engaged

    We’re all owners of the business and are committed to moving it foward. We’re students of our industry and committed to learning. We recognize that our best work happens when we engage others.

  • *

    Scrappy

    We do what it takes to get the job done, irrespective of title or function. We don’t wait to be told what to do, but instead proactively look for problems to solve. We don’t let a fear of failure stand in the way of progress.

  • *

    Innovative

    We don’t shy away from big problems - we tackle them head on. We’re constantly thinking of new ways to solve old problems. We don’t let entrenched industry practices limit our thinking.

  • *

    Genuine

    We take our work seriously but not ourselves. We’re people first and employees second. We take the time to get to know each other - inside and outside of the office.

  • *

    Nurturing

    We know what we don’t know, and we are comfortable asking for help. We believe in results and a shared commitment to professional advancement. We strive to create an environment where people feel empowered to express informed views.
