GSK set out to prove their hypothesis that a reduction in real estate footprint and densifying the workforce does not have to lead to a reduction in loss of productivity and employee wellbeing when done in tandem with an integrated, data-driven change management program. For over 10 years, they invested in strategic, mixed-method spatial performance data collection to understand its impact on the GSK global scientific workforce. Their research has shown the immense value of investing in co-creation between the business and operations to find optimal spatial solutions. Their success hinges on a team approach – integrating all involved into a high-performance One Team.

Key Takeaways:

  • Discover the value GSK Worldwide Real Estate & Facilities has generated from crafting a mixed-method spatial performance data collection strategy that feeds into the full project life cycle
