Today's post is from a Knoll Workplace Research handout I recently received on the metrics of distributed work places.
Distributed work places are those that use collaboration and efficiency. Distributed work environments are characterized on the below:
- Smaller, higher density individual spaces
- A wider variety of group settings
- Increased allocation of seats for collaborative spaces
- Reduced emphasis on large conference rooms
The model below shows the average square footage per person 10 years ago, which was 227SF, compare to today's average average person at135SF.
- Small meeting spaces have higher utilization rates
- Distributed work strategies more than double the employee-to-desk ratio
- Distributed work environments offer more vairety in meeting types (patios, cafe's, game rooms, etc).
Have a great day!
