Leveraging workplace data in your return to work plans

Learn more on how to leverage data to manage work rotations, social distancing and day to day building operations when bringing employees back to the office.

How will you efficiently manage work rotations and occupancy limits?

Work attitudes have changed at each lockdown in the UK, with 17%+ more people making the journey into the office during the 3rd lockdown. It’s evident people want to go back to the office and starting preparations now to return to work is fundamental.

90% of people want to work 2-3 days in the office

Managing who, when and how employees return to the office doesn’t have to be a challenge. By leveraging occupancy sensors to gather utilisation data you can efficiently manage space capacity and closely monitor when changes are needed to workspaces.

Managing space capacity and social distancing occupancy limits

Managing work rotation and staggering employees back to the office is one of the biggest challenges organisations will encounter. Understanding how many people will be in the office at any given time during the working week is no easy task.

Using space occupancy sensors and leveraging the data gathered from this is the quickest way to oversee how office buildings are used. You can see in real time who is occupying which workspace and manage social distancing occupancy limits efficiently.

As well as this, environmental sensors can help gather data on temperature, CO2 and humidity levels in order for you to monitor the air quality in buildings and control how much fresh air is circulated to ensure the safety of employees.

It’s more important than ever before to use data to make evidence based decisions in your strategies in order to work smarter and efficiently, as well as:

  • Plan beyond COVID19
  • Manage work rotations and how employees are staggered back to the office
  • Monitor how employees are using the office and what adaptations are necessary to ensure the office remains fit for purpose
  • Monitor the air quality of the building and ensure fresh air is continuously circulated
  • Leveraging employee feedback to benchmark effectiveness of changes
  • Inform contact tracing processes in order to act quickly in case of an outbreak
