Founder and CEO, Leesman
Oldman is founder and CEO of Leesman – the world’s foremost authority on employee workplace experience. He started his career in 1991 as a designer in the gritty world of transport design but by 2003 had developed a greater interest in the business strategy of workplace. In 2009, while working as an independent adviser supporting several leading global organisations on the alignment of their workplace strategies, he spotted an opportunity to develop a new technique that would test the ability of an organisation’s places to support its employees. More than 10 years later, the Leesman Index is used by industry thought leaders around the world to measure, benchmark and improve the experience of their employees. In March 2020, Leesman launched new tools that would also evaluate the experience of employees working from home. Today it’s the largest employee homeworking experience benchmark dataset of its kind.
