If Space-per-Head is Dead, What’s Next? How Microsoft is Designing for Employee Experience

Today more than ever, 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 technologies that can gather and conceptualize space usage data from actual, real-world sources at the team level. Microsoft is solving this important industry problem using the cloud, machine learning, analytics, and sociometric data across its global portfolio. Discover what Microsoft has learned about how precise, accurate attendance knowledge can help businesses both be smarter about space design and shift real estate thinking to a more strategic plane.

Key Takeaways:

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