About Ashley:

Ashley Jane Casey is part of the Steelcase Australia Sydney team. She says that “I genuinely love what I do, the industry at large and the people we work with. I’ve been working in the furniture and interior industry since 2002, and am excited about what’s ahead! The workplace is constantly changing, keeping us all highly engaged! I love helping our clients navigate their interior requirements.

All projects require a team to deliver. We have been lucky enough to work on many projects and within many teams over the years, with Interior Designers, Architects, Project Managers, Engineers, Builders, Suppliers, Services and Workplace Consultants who together bring a design concept to life.

I love meeting new people, and finding out what makes them and their organisation tick. I love learning and am lucky to work at Steelcase, where learning and continued education is actively encouraged … with an unending list of material. If you’re interested, here’s a link to Steelcase’s recent research.

Personal growth and peek performance are favourite research topics of mine. I am interested in how this integrates with the workplace, where organisations are looking to get the best out of their people, and the people within the workplace are looking to work at their best. We continually ask how the physical environment can positively influence people and performance. Through both research and experience we’re keeping up to date on best practice.

I am passionate about leading organisations who care about their people. In turn I care about delivering the best outcome for the organisations and the people I work with. Reach out to me directly if you would like to discuss all things workplace and hear about what we’re doing here at Steelcase.”
