I recently spoke to a group of law firm CIOs. I was challenging them to think beyond their view of IT and its role in workplace transformation. Two CIOs in particular challenged me:
This is the last in our Smart Occupancy series, just in time for this year's Agile Workplace Conference, Smart Occupancy: Balancing People, Planet & Profit. We have reviewed the key concerns and questions that a Smart Occupancy strategy answers for a variety of roles within the organization, leaving one of the most significant groups for last, the workers.
You know it’s true. The time has passed for the timid, waffling and toe-in-the-water new workplace strategy pilots that seem to rule the day.
You see the impact of broken workplace policies, empty boxes of air we call office buildings and roads choked with a hell called commuting. You know your organization must do the right thing; broad and bold adoption of mobility and hoteling that improve productivity, profitability, agility and sustainability.
In case you have missed it, over the past several months, we have been defining the workplace strategy, Smart Occupancy, as it pertains to various departments and job roles. There are just 2 more in this series, ending just in time for the Agile Workplace Conference in September, of which the theme this year is "Smart Occupancy: Balancing People + Planet + Profit." The Smart Occupancy strategy encompasses all aspects of an organization, both physical and non-physical, to ensure productivity and efficiency and sustainability in the workplace. This month's article highlights Smart Occupancy for Sustainability Management, illustrating how Smart Occupancy is the one strategy to help meet all the goals of an organization.
AgilQuest just announced the release OnBoard 5.5.1, which connects office space management to the energy savings of intelligent buildings. OnBoard knows where people are and when they are supposed to arrive, and when integrated with an intelligent building, can maximize efficiency by telling the lights, HVAC and other building functions when to turn on and off.
My father-in-law is known for his groaners. I usually half-listen and pacify him with some half-hearted reply. But one of his recent jokes got me thinking about the new flex e-courses we have created through our partnership with e-Work. It went something like this:
06/12/2013 – Richmond, VA - AgilQuest Corporation has released the core concepts of Smart Occupancy, the philosophy and approach behind the solutions savings millions annually in office space at large companies and federal agencies without compromising employee satisfaction or productivity. Smart Occupancy applies the latest mobile technology, access control integration, and modern workplace expertise to balance the need to save on real estate and energy with the practical support needs of the workforce. This combination of "secret ingredients" has set AgilQuest apart from their technology-only competitors and fueled the recent success in the federal government.
A Smart Occupancy strategy allows companies to balance the management of their office space real estate with the rapidly evolving needs of the workforce occupying that office space. This results in less real estate needed and higher worker satisfaction from better-aligned occupant services. Smart Occupancy reduces energy use, optimizes space utilization, and minimizes the environmental impact of the building, all while improving employee morale, productivity and organizational performance.
