Measure the success of your hybrid workplace strategy

You’ve put a plan in place. Follow these three steps to figure out what to do next

Once a set-it-and-forget-it policy, the hybrid workplace of today demands a more nuanced approach, spanning from office re-entry to space allocation and portfolio strategy.

Though your organization may have put a hybrid workplace strategy in place from the start, is it truly effective? Are your employees content and productive? And how does this impact your company’s financial health? Does your footprint align with how much space you actually need?

By taking another look and refreshing your hybrid workplace strategy, you can unveil a wealth of opportunities to elevate employee experiences and engagement, ultimately resulting in a real estate portfolio that is more resilient, nimble and in sync with your goals.

We’ve crafted a checklist designed to guide you in evaluating your organization's strengths and weaknesses and pinpointing the strategies that yield the highest ROI for your office real estate.

Highlights include:
Step 1: Revisit your work-from-anywhere approach

Reassess your business goals and tie your workplace program to measurable outcomes. Are you measuring employee productivity? Attraction and retention? Define your metrics.

Step 2: Update your corporate real estate portfolio plan

What’s your current workplace strategy? How about three years from now? Assess your portfolio holistically to understand how different layouts and various office sizes could impact your workforce. Consider implications for office size and the types of workspaces to make available.

Step 3: Implement real estate changes at the office level

Implement a change management process alongside revisions to your policies, practices and office layouts. Change management best practices founded on education and effective communication can help turn strategies into concrete plans that employees will embrace.
