Gathering Workplace Data? As Easy As IPS
In the quest for a more productive workplace environment, establishing a ground truth is key to guiding the evolution of office spaces. Understanding what works is as important as knowing what doesn’t. Answering those questions effectively and efficiently is key. In conversations with commercial real estate and facilities management professionals over the last year, I’ve asked the question about what works every time and heard as many different answers as the number of people I’ve queried. Self-reported employee surveys, manual pen-and-paper observations, and room booking history are some of the more common ways for understanding how a particular corporate office is being used.
