The benefits of optimised workplace environments and holistic occupancy management are measurable values. These include savings on real estate costs, a reduction in carbon footprint, the attraction and retention of talented staff, and data analysis measuring how well your property is serving your business.
On average, CBRE’s Workplace and Occupancy team have delivered a 20% saving in occupancy costs through reduced vacancy, efficient design, and new space allocation practices.
Delivering value to our clients
Set A Clear Vision
Be clear about your vision for change and how you think that change will be beneficial for your business. This may involve supporting new, agile ways of working, or the introduction of new technologies, or shifting the way work gets done in the organisation.
Enable Your People
Fundamental to the idea of creating workplaces that attract people is understanding the people themselves. Go beyond generations, and work to understand both the work patterns and life stages of your people so you can appropriately tailor work experience to their needs.
Meet Basic Needs
Great workplaces start with the basic elements we all need to be productive at work: convenient access to a wide variety of spaces that enable different work patterns and preferences, seamless technology, support of wellbeing, and the ability to easily find information and access other people.
Create A Destination
Work can and will happen everywhere. Flexibility and choice are highly prized by employees. However, bringing people together is key to driving more collaborative cultures. We believe the two need not be mutually exclusive. By making the office a highly functional, enjoyable place to get work done, employers can offer flexibility but also ensure that the office is a place people choose to be.
Focus On Details
Research shows real economic benefit to caring for your employees, in the form of attraction and retention of top talent, amplified by increased loyalty, wellbeing and engagement. Investing in workplace translates to employees feeling that they are valued and the work they do is important.
