How can building provide value to your businees?

05

Faster innovation

No matter whether big or small, businesses see innovation among the top strategic vehicles for success.

Innovation is the implementation of new or significantly improved products (physical goods or service), processes, new marketing methods or new organizational methods in business practice.

According to a 2016 Deloitte Innovation Survey, 96% of executives consider innovation to be among the top five strategic priorities, with more than a fifth of companies classifying innovation as their top priority.

04

More engaged employees

The more your employees like the ‘why’ and ‘what’ of their work with you, the better off your company gets.

Employee engagement is the emotional commitment an employee has to their organization and its goals. It leads to higher employee productivity, especially in service and product oriented companies. Organizations with highly engaged employees outperform those with low employee engagement by 202%, a 2010 Gallup study reveals.

Improved talent attraction & retention

People are your key asset – make sure you attract the best and keep them.

On average, it costs from 16% to 213% of an employee’s annual salary to replace them. Talent attraction is an organization’s ability to attract talented and qualified individuals in order to recruit the best employees. Retention is the ability of an organization to retain its employees.

More efficient use of time

Interruptions & distractions damage your team’s real productivity.

A key to our efficiency is how we use resources – our time, the time of other people and our capabilities, such as brain power. Interruptions due to distractions or a lack of resources consume 28% of knowledge workers' work time.

Lower absenteeism & presenteeism

Make sure your office building does not make your employees sick.

Absenteeism is the level of absence from work and presenteeism stands for presence at work despite sickness. These two are strong indicators of employee health.
According to a 2010 EurWork study, the average rates of working time absence across Europe are between 3% and 6%, or 53 to 106 hours per employee per year, a 2015 OECD study explains. Moreover, 39% of employees and as much as 57% of managers in Europe go to work even when they do not feel healthy.
