Data from Freespace shows that office occupancy has reached their highest levels since March of 2020.
Taking data from its sensors, the company shows that there has been an 8% increase in the amount of people returning to the office during the first half of September compared to the entirety of August.
In offices where Freespace sensors are located worldwide, 38% have shown people returning to work, with 16% od spaces being one-third full.
Meeting room usage has also increased by 6% in September to a total of 26%, and workstation usage has grown by 4% during the same time to a total of 22%.
“With the shift to hybrid working, conversations over the past year between employee and employer have been dominated by what the office can offer the former that they can’t get at home,” said Raj Krishnamurthy, CEO of Freespace. “We always anticipated a sharp increase in the number of offices returning to work post-summer holidays but perhaps not as significant as this in such a short space of time.”
