12:00 pm - 12:35 pm Flexible Workplaces: Building Safe, Productive and Efficient Spaces in 2021

Samantha O'Neill - Offering Manager, IBM TRIRIGA

Space planning is at the core of your real estate and facilities management strategy. Not only does it play a vital

role in the ability to return to work, but it also supports the employee experience, cost savings of up to 30%, and

long-term operational efficiency and resiliency. Now that the way we work has changed, space management is

more important than ever. Join us in this session to hear how IoT and AI can enable flexible workplaces by:

  • Ensuring facility readiness for re-entry
  • Determining space allocation based on business need (I.e. collaboration spaces, hot desk/hoteling, etc.)
  • Measuring utilization against time to maximize schedule-based sharing of rooms and spaces
  • Using density heat mapping to ensure adherence to shifting capacity guidelines
  • Keeping employee experience at the forefront of your strategy
