About Puzzle Partners

We pride ourselves on the relationships we build with our clients and help them solve problems and make improvements in their workplaces to enable their strategic and often aspirational objectives.

Among other things, we help our clients manage the complex logistics associated with moving teams, information & assets between workplace environments. For many of our clients, the physical relocation to a new or refurbished space also provides an exciting opportunity for them to transform and introduce new ways of working. For example – we will undertake physical storage audits before the organisation moves and then help them to build digital habits and shift from paper intensive to a ‘paperlite’ approach.
