HR has emerged as a vital part of a company’s entrance into the future of work. As organizations attempt to create new plans to adapt to current circumstances, HR has helped guide them to prioritize safety, wellbeing, while also encouraging collaboration.
The biggest challenge facing CRE and HR leaders will be navigating how to keep offices safe and healthy, while allowing workers to continue operating on an efficient level.
Over the past few years, real estate teams have taken the reins in strategic decisions of their companies by pushing forward data-driven approaches to adapt to the evolving needs of the workforce.
Moving forward, measuring your company through metrics involving cost per square foot or employee will not be effective in enhancing your company’s operations. Instead, looking towards a model that prioritizes the human experience, including productivity and satisfaction, will make all the difference.
Properly measuring productivity is a good first step in ensuring the best for your organization. For instance, HR has a variety of methods that accurately measure productivity including manager feedback, looking at a team’s output and the quality of tasks that have been completed.
Having a full understanding of what makes workers productive can allow businesses to take the next step in creating a workspace that further reflects this atmosphere. CRE teams can look into offering collaborative spaces, varied lighting, quiet areas and more that fuel the best work practices of employees.
