    Barclay's is not the only corporate company in the market place to perform what is commonly known as Occupancy Utilisation Studies.

    This method of workplace analysis is standard practice across the large majority of big organisation. As the workplace evolves to support more flexible working practices and new ways of working, it is important to under how the workplace is performing.

    This helps companies reduce waste, such as energy, provision of 3rd party support services and helps reduce any ongoing financial waste. As well as improve facilities too.

    What is important to understand, when a building is under utilised due to staff working more flexibly, in some instances this means that every week 20% of workspace is empty.

    That's a big value and companies need to manage this.
