Corporate Real Estate Metrics: Enablers or Barriers to Workplace Transformation?

The world of workplace has more data at its disposal than ever before. This has the potential to fuel a new wave of evidence-based, human-centric design. But it also has the potential to fuel myopic data-driven mistakes. There are many frameworks to help those working within the corporate real estate (CRE) realm acquire a holistic view of how assets are performing. Seven key metrics feature regularly and are hailed as enablers of workplace transformation if measured correctly:

  1. space utilisation
  2. costs of occupancy
  3. safety, comfort and compliance
  4. space productivity
  5. location
  6. wellbeing
  7. lease life.

This suggests that FM/CRE professionals can manage and apply data in properties to achieve peak performance. But what of the employee? How can an advisory pitch to the real estate profession on using data in workplace transformation fail to propose engaging with individual occupiers? These frameworks ignore the most difficult component of enabling workplace transformation. Until now, fundamental decisions are being made by organisations with little or no evidence of their direct impact on employees. This session will encourage you to look beyond the metrics and at the people. And to measure the right things.

Key Takeaways:

  • Acquire a more holistic view of CRE performance. Get the insight necessary to transform data analytics, building utilisation, employee experience and, ultimately, leverage corporate performance.
  • Learn what's driving performance and success within business, and understand the various components that impact employee experience. Explore new capabilities and profitable business models.
  • Consider how the workplace supports people in their roles before making any decisions with regards to maintaining, acquiring or reducing space.
