This is the third part in a series of blogs called “Mobilize!” In the first installment, I discussed the concept of flexible work in general, and in the second, I got started on the topic of making a case for flexible working. In this post, I continue on the subject of making a business case, setting up KPI’s, measuring impact for improving the working environment.
Spaces can be designed to encourage certain types of behavior, such as individual work or collaboration.
Choice architecture is used to help nudge us to behave in certain ways – in the workplace, too, where the aim usually is to optimize organizational effectiveness and well-being.
For almost every organization working in an office environment, premises are the second largest cost after personnel. Office space utilization measurements help you confirm whether you have the right kind of premises and whether you really need all the square meters you are currently using.
Utilization analysis – good basis for workplace lifecycle management and not only prior to a workplace change project!
Before we make a workplace change, whether it is moving to a new office or transforming the existing office, or some other workplace change, we tend to conduct a utilization analysis. We want to know how we are using the workspace, so that we can have a better idea of what we might need in the new workspace. How are we working? Where are we working? How much space do we need? What kind of space and workstations/collaboration areas do we need, and in what extent?
