Workspace Optimization Measures for 2020
Monday, April 27, 2020
Maximizing space utilization has become one of the most important market trends among real estate and facility managers, according to a survey from independent research firm Verdantix. Between rising real estate costs and the introduction of solutions for easier space and occupancy data collection, organizations are realizing the cost-saving potential of optimizing their workspaces. Yet, the number-one objective for real estate management has moved from reducing costs to improving the comfort and well-being of building occupants.
While you don’t want a large number of employees in a space too small to accommodate them, you also don’t want a lot of unused, wasted space. In general, between 40 and 60 percent of workstations are vacant at any given time. Finding the proper solution only increases in complexity when you factor in the increase in employees working remotely and the desire among the millennial workforce for more streamlined, collaborative space.
