Can Utilization Analytics Signal and Even Predict the Return to the Office?

Many organizations around the world have moved from the strategic phase of planning the return to the office into the tactical phase of laying out planning for which employees will be returning and when as well as solutions for keeping the work environment as safe as possible for occupants. The question is, when will we see the return happening?  


Room booking data will be one of the leading indicators of the actual return to work plans of most organizations and we will continue to monitor and report on these trends.
