Real estate is one of the top expenses at any company which is why understanding how space is used is critical in order to maximize workplace value. Dive into conference room utilization with this policy template to better measure space performance.
If you’re reading this, you’re probably struggling to effectively manage conference room usage in your organization. In order to make informed decisions around space planning, you need to accurately track room usage across the office. If you're having a hard time answering the following questions, a policy may be in order:
Using this template, you'll be able to customize what conference room usage tracking entails in your office, which conference room usage metrics you'll track, when (and how) employees can report issues with conference rooms and spaces, how your company will enforce rules to require check-ins and reduce no-show meetings, and what's expected from employees, including providing feedback, reserving conference room spaces based on meeting type, and more.
Tracking conference room usage is a great way to understand space utilization in the office, rather than relying entirely on employee input. Sending a policy to the entire company which outlines why you’re tracking conference room usage, what the company will provide, and what’s needed from employees is a good starting point. As data is collected, your team can use insights around space usage to make changes and improvements to underperforming areas.
