Why we should analyze occupancy?
Conducting an office occupancy analysis is beneficial when expanding, moving or upgrading office space. Companies can offer a better employee experience and enjoy a more effective use of facilities by consulting with a real estate or design firm.
An office space occupancy analysis examines office space utilization, work habits and regular patterns, and provides a statistical basis to optimize strategy and make decisions.
Occupancy utilization data is typically collected with technology such as occupancy sensors, which can monitor and track occupancy rates in real time.
Application of results provides increased asset management usage rates, more effective decision-making efficiency and ROI, increased space planning feasibility, and a decreased vacancy rate, while ultimately increasing an employee’s experience and reducing cost of real estate and facility management.
