Stand out from the rest
Apart from employee advantages, there are some interesting employer benefits too. Employers are able to stand out from the crowd and attract, as well as retain, new talent if they adapt to the hybrid model. People would rather work for a modern organisation, where they are given the flexibility to spend their workdays as they see fit, than for a traditional organisation where they are required to be in the office fulltime. Employers who impose mandatory work in the office will notice in the short or long term that talented employees will leave the company.
Save space and money

Apart from saved real-estate costs, employers are able to make the office more sustainable.

Workplace Analytics is not only about making the hybrid office more efficient but also gaining insights into employee behavior.
