The workplace has evolved. The way we work, the hours we work, even the spaces we work in have changed over the past several years. Since hybrid work is now the most common workplace strategy, workplace experience is more important than ever.

Now is the time for workplace experience leaders to put their best foot forward and build offices that enhance productivity, promote collaboration, and improve employee experience. But with the current evolution taking place, determining what people need to feel comfortable and engaged in the workplace isn’t always easy. It can feel overwhelming to sort through all the data to identify trends and make decisions about how to optimize the spaces you have.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered solutions, like Workplace Assistant, can significantly speed up the decision-making process and optimize operations, enabling workplace experience teams to efficiently find solutions. So, how can you incorporate AI into your workplace strategy?

Let's dive into the impact of AI on decision-making and explore how Workplace Assistant can help you meet your workplace objectives.

Decision Making for Workplace Experience

Making decisions about your portfolio, space design, neighborhood planning, or shifts in operational processes can be a time-consuming process, especially when employee satisfaction is a metric for success. From gathering data to transforming it into actionable insights, this journey can span weeks or even months.

Workplace experience teams depend on a variety of sources to understand occupancy trends:

  • Wifi data
  • Sensor data
  • Badge data
  • Desk booking data
  • Survey data, and more

Having a wealth of data at your disposal is a valuable asset. It enables you to gain deeper insights into office utilization and evolving employee behaviors. However, the process of analyzing this data isn't always straightforward.

Although sometimes the solution is clear, many teams spend days sorting through insights and identifying trends, especially if there isn’t a data analyst on the team. The analysis process can be lengthy, manual, and convoluted.

AI can help streamline the process, eliminating wasted time and resources on manual data analysis tasks, and thus allowing workplace experience teams to make decisions faster. AI can speed up analysis, offering rapid results and personalized recommendations, so understanding how spaces, policies, and changes align with employee priorities can be easier than ever.
