We help clients optimize their use of flexible workspaces. We understand the underlying business drivers that inform a flexible workspace strategy and have built a 5-step portfolio diagnostic that unearths these opportunities.
The diagnostic considers key business drivers combined with market supply data to score locations by viability for a flexible workspace solution.
- Step 1: We analyse key business drivers to score locations by their business case for flexibility and assign each location a ‘flex score’
- Step 2: We identify target locations for flexibility based on the highest overall scores
- Step 3: We utilize our global research to rank the maturity of flexible workspace supply in the target markets (‘supply score’)
- Step 4: We overlay the ‘flex score’ with the ‘supply score’ to grade all the opportunities by combined score
- Step 5: We provide the client with a set of recommendations along with both qualitative and quantitative impacts
