Space occupancy and space utilization have always been important metrics to measure in your workplace, but in the hybrid environment, they’re even more critical.
The average space utilization rate for enterprises worldwide was only about 60% before the pandemic, according to a JLL benchmarking report. Now, with more employees continuing to work remotely, that could drop significantly. Over time, poor space utilization not only leads to substantial waste; it also contributes to a poor employee experience. When employees choose to come to the office and find it’s either overcrowded or abandoned, they’ll be more likely to stay home in the future.
This diminishes the role of the office as a hub for collaboration and innovation.
