How to deal with the rise in office operating costs

Most of our clients have changed office layouts due to the continued acceptance of tele- and hybrid working. As a result, companies have moved to smaller office spaces and reducing shop floor space.

On the other hand, some have chosen to stick with just one social hub, which is more centrally located in our country. Consequently, the shift towards more flexible and adaptable workspaces continues.

Measuring and Evaluating Occupancy

A large number of employees do not go to the office daily, resulting in unused office space. According to research by Savills, a global real estate services provider, the average office occupancy rate in Europe was 43%.

In other words, 57% of the floor space leased by companies across Europe is not being utilized. Conclusion: companies are spending twice as much on real estate as necessary.

Sustainability Is Much More Than Just Thinking Green

Besides the main goal of saving annual costs, a reduction in office space can also be beneficial for your company's sustainability goals. According to the Paris Agreement, the European Union aims to be carbon neutral by 2050, including office buildings.

To achieve this goal, you need to start gradually making changes to your building now. It's better to optimize your office now and limit investments in green alternatives, rather than spending too much on sustainable solutions for parts of the building you won't even use.

Attracting Talent through Cost Savings in Your Workspace

A well-designed and efficiently utilized office space can have a positive impact on a company's perception among potential employees. It helps in attracting and retaining talent in a competitive job market. The way people work is constantly evolving. Flexible working hours, remote work, and shared workspaces have become increasingly common.

In short, efficiently utilizing office space has become essential to align with a prudent future. Reducing costs, promoting sustainability, and providing an attractive work environment for your employees becomes a positive story with only minimal investments.
