Tech Hub - Space Per Head Is Dead

Given today's highly mobile workforce, designing for "space per head" is not only too imprecise to be useful, but it also can be downright misleading as a metric for spending decisions and strategies. Real estate is not about squeezing out every drop of space based on headcount. It's about being efficient to the point where your company has the luxury of investing in real estate programming that will advance the business value proposition. Accomplishing this in a world where workers roam more freely than ever requires rigorous, scientific technologies that can gather and conceptualize space usage data at the team level. Discover how Microsoft is solving this important industry problem using the cloud, machine learning, analytics, and sociometric data across its global portfolio. See what Microsoft has learned about how precise, accurate attendance knowledge can help businesses both be smarter about space design and shift real estate thinking and investments to a more strategic plane.

Key Takeaways:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the relationships between utilization, attendance, and headcount, and why space per head is dead as a metric for workplace performance.
  • Benefit from an overview of the kinds of technologies needed to achieve precise, scientific space utilization tracking and keep businesses nimble and productive in an increasingly mobile world. 
  • Discern how greater precision for space utilization data can improve your programming capabilities, as well as promote new thinking about real estate’s place in supporting business strategy.
