As we finish The Optimized Workplace series, it is fitting to wrap up with a discussion about space strategy and it impacts to the physical environment. It seems like for as long as we have been talking about the workplace, our clients have always been looking for ways to “optimize”, drive down costs, engage, attract and retain employees through their real estate portfolio planning.

Space continues to be one of the highest overhead costs for our clients. Organizations are moving towards a more dynamic planning approach that is constantly looking at the most efficient and effective space use.
