Asia Pacific Major Report - Space Utilisation: The Next Frontier September 2015
Organisations are under enormous pressure to drive down costs by increasing their workplace ‘static density’—the space per sq. ft. per workstation. In many parts of Asia, this has already reached a point where further reductions will impact productivity, performance and retention.
Across the region, workplace static density has halved in certain Asian markets over the last decade. Low densities in the workplace imply reductions in shared collaborative and isolated work settings—impacting team work, decision making and ability to focus.
This CBRE Special Report, Space Utilisation: The Next Frontier, looks into how benchmarking metrics such as workplace density and space utilisation is becoming more critical in helping corporate occupiers make informed workplace and real estate decisions, and manage their real estate as a strategic asset. However, this needs to be approached in the right way.
The report explains how corporate occupiers must develop a complete understanding of how their people work, and what their organisational objectives and imperatives are. It is only by aligning these two fundamental perspectives that companies can implement a workplace strategy capable of achieving cost effective business transformation.
