SPONSORED CONTENT: Are you ready for the changing role of the workplace?
The assumptions around the importance of office buildings have been challenged during the pandemic. Businesses have realised that their employees can work very effectively from home, however they have also been shown the importance of social working for employee wellbeing, creativity, and team building.
Hybrid working is undoubtedly the future, but how this will look will be different from organisation to organisation. What won’t change though is the need to get the right balance between hybrid working practices, the needs of employees, and the large costs associated with operating offices and workplaces.
Occupancy data can help bridge these three elements, creating an occupant centric building that works for both employees and the bottom line.
Why measure and collect occupancy data?
It is only possible to understand how much office space an organisation really needs if the right data is available. Without accurate data on how buildings are used it is impossible to know whether they are currently under-serving or over-serving the business.
Do they provide enough collaborative space? Would more (or fewer) hot desks be useful? Would large conference spaces and meeting rooms be better structured as smaller spaces? And how flexible do office spaces need to be so that they can provide the best environment for employees during a working week where requirements change from day to day?
The biggest expenditure for many organisations is on employees. But this is followed by the cost of office space and the cost of utilities use. So it is important for businesses to understand how they can optimise their office spaces both in terms of encouraging employee productivity and in terms of reducing running costs such as heating, lighting and air conditioning.
