This Workplace PIN workshop focused on the way organisations make decisions about workplace optimisation, often only considering cost reduction or revenue generation at the expense of the effectiveness / productivity of the building’s occupants. Since those people are generally the organisation’s most valuable asset – this approach can be short sighted, even if the cost / revenue imperatives are met.
Many organisations undergo office relocation at some point, but many do not think to use this as a time of workplace optimisation. A good way to not only reduce real estate and facilities management expenses but to also increase workplace productivity, is to focus on a workplace strategy that enables better working and space optimisation – for example, agile working.
The group spent some time working through a scenario to see how decisions can be made without vital information being available.
We introduced members to the PIN CUBE – a new measurement framework that pinpoints performance against 3 critical dimensions: Workplace Design Efficiency; Workplace Utilisation and Workplace Productivity. There was a lot of good feedback and discussion with members on the ideas and measures. More to follow soon!
There was also a fascinating Case Study from Willis Towers Watson – exploring their experience of agile working and their upcoming 1 floor Pilot which starts in March 2016.
Held at Willis Towers Watson, Lime Street, City of London
