Space planning and Managers’ challenges in the transition to the office are plentiful but do not always align technology and software that brings empirical management.  They should answer some key questions.

• What benchmarks should determine when to re-open the office?

• How many employees can return to the office safely, who needs to be physically present, and on what schedules should they return?

• Are assigned seats or flexible seating arrangements more conducive to employee health and productivity?

• How can I reassure employees that they can have confidence in the elevated safety measures at the office?

• What types of steps must I take to manage liability from reopening the office?

• In the event of a resurgence of the virus, how can I facilitate contact tracing?

• Is the current allocation of space to workplaces, meeting rooms, concentrations paces, and other space types appropriate for the transformed office?

The answer to these questions hinges on collecting data, developing insights on space utilization and facilities maintenance, and communicating effectively with all stakeholders
