By Nick Batten on 29 June, 2022

Interaction, the Bath-based workplace design and build company, has appointed the former Director of Hybrid Working at the House of Commons as a Specialist Workplace Strategist.

Emma Wharton Love was responsible for developing and delivering a hybrid working model at the House of Commons. She was also on the executive team overseeing the multi-billion-pound restoration of the Palace of Westminster and devised the corresponding relocation programme.

Prior to this she was a workplace strategist at HOK, the global design and architecture company, where she advised on major projects including the Guardian News & Media group’s move to new London headquarters in King’s Cross.

In her new role, Emma will apply her extensive experience leading complex workplace projects, helping clients to future-gaze and tackle the key organisational challenges thrown up by hybrid and agile working, as well as providing thought leadership.

She said, “I’m delighted to be joining a creative and forward-thinking company that not only has a real grasp of the complex issues facing organisations and employees as they settle into new ways of working, but is also so focused on the wellbeing of those who use their workspaces and decreasing the environmental impact of creating them.

“I’m looking forward to helping clients navigate through their challenges and helping create the perfect conditions for their employees to thrive.”

Dieter Wood, Managing Director of Interaction, said, “We’re really excited to welcome Emma to our growing team at a time when the traditional workplace is undergoing such fundamental change.

“In such rapidly evolving times, reviewing your workplace strategy is more important than ever. Emma’s extensive knowledge and experience will help ensure that we continue to provide innovative design solutions that promote better ways of working, staff wellbeing and sustainability.”
