Agility is a word that describes not only the products that Actiforce creates, yet also its culture. A purposefully short chain of command encourages action, movement and transparency. Prioritising equality and cross-collaboration within its own teams – across sales, marketing, R&D, engineering, manufacturing – has contributed to Actiforce’s pride in the value of each team member, the type of workplace they need, and the multi-faceted nature of modern workplace design.
Movement begins here, and the revolution is just getting started. For us today that means stepping into every type of workplace; from office, to warehouse, hospitals, kitchens and homes. We want to bring healthy living to every place of work.
