Workplace Analytics Platform

Comprehensive analytics for a range of workplace data sets provides actionable insights and enables more informed decisions about your real estate portfolio.

What is workplace analytics software?

Workplace analytics software enables businesses to collect, analyze, and interpret data related to their employees’ activities and productivity. This software provides insights into how employees are spending their time, what tasks they are working on, and how efficiently they are completing their work.

Workplace analytics software can track a variety of different metrics, such as time spent on certain tasks, project progress, communication patterns, and even employee satisfaction levels. By analyzing this data, businesses can identify patterns and trends that can help them make informed decisions about how to optimize their workforce and improve overall productivity.

In addition to providing valuable insights into employee behavior, workplace analytics software can also help organizations identify areas where they can reduce costs or improve their bottom line.

Use Cases for Workplace Analytics

Re-stacking demands ongoing attention and evaluation as increased worker mobility drives continuous change in the office environment. Companies are searching for ways to improve collaboration, innovation and productivity in today’s highly competitive business arena. People, processes and place are all important ingredients that factor into that success, and companies need to re-stack departments, business units and work teams to realize greater efficiencies.

Value-Add Results:

  • Identify and prioritize locations for departments, business units or individual teams
  • Determine the most efficient placement of shared spaces, such as conference and meeting rooms
  • Minimize travel between floors and within large floor plans based on employee interaction
  • Improve space utilization that can make space more efficient and enjoyable
  • Consider multiple scenarios to help find the best course of action and minimize disruption
  • Track mobility and space utilization to determine hoteling ratios
  • Collect baseline data and maintain historical results
  • Create a modern workplace to attract and retain top talent

Companies are increasingly challenged to find the right balance in coveted conference room space. At some firms, there is simply never enough space, while others may be throwing money at underutilized meeting rooms. Today’s more mobile workforce has completely upended traditional means of calculating conference room size, number and location. The rise of modern workplace design has meant throwing the old rules out the window when it comes to calculating conference room space. The only way to get it right is by measuring actual space utilization.

Value-Add Results:

  • Reconfigure existing formal and informal meeting space to maximize productivity and space utilization
  • Rightsize the number and size of conference rooms to create a better balance between the supply and demand for meeting and collaborative space
  • Create flexible space and/or alternatives that can be modified to fit changing need

Consolidation reduces costs and fuels future investments. Companies across the board are facing the challenge of consolidating space to cut costs and adapt to changing workstyles. M&A activity, lease expiration’s and corporate divestitures are other drivers that are forcing businesses to rethink, reconfigure and rightsize their real estate. Orchestrating a successful consolidation requires a delicate balance between creating desired efficiencies, while still maintaining a workplace that can accommodate future growth and be an asset in retaining and attracting employees.

Value-Add Results:

  • Optimize space by aligning the real estate portfolio for current and future needs
  • Identify opportunities to reduce real estate and cut costs
  • Maximize the reallocation of funds to other projects and re-program space
  • Consider multiple scenarios to help find the best course of action and minimize disruption
  • Provide data to support faster – and smarter – real estate decisions related to owned and leased space, i.e. renew in place, sublease or sell underutilized assets

Technology has created a seismic shift in where, when and how people choose to work. Workers are no longer tied to a desk or a phone. They can – and do – work anywhere and everywhere. Companies are increasingly challenged to re-balance the amount of reserved and open workspace to support those modern workstyles and bolster creativity, innovation and productivity. The fact that a larger percentage of the workforce is moving within and between locations, often in what appears to be a random way, makes it critical for companies to measure and monitor mobility and collaboration over time.

Value-Add Results: 

  • Reconfigure space that encourages collaboration and innovation
  • Optimize formal and informal workspaces, meeting space and special use areas
  • Design a modern office that attracts and retains top talent
  • Improve corporate brand image
  • Adapt workspace to accommodate changing lifestyles, employee preferences and technology
  • Identify collaboration needs within departments, as well as efficiency to be gained in adjacencies
