Create Employee Groups

A natural defining line may be those that are coming into the office and those that are not.

Pro tip: Think outside the lines of departments at this point, but rather focus on how, when and why employees will use the space.  

Define these groups by their distinguishing factors. Write out the definition of each group. For example, 10% of employees want to work in the office 4 days a week, with a defined workspace. They will use meeting and collaboration spaces for 50% of their meetings.   Name each group. Look through your descriptions and brainstorm a name for each group that aligns to those defining attributes. This name can help bring the whole set of characteristics of the group to mind while planning.
