    With work becoming increasingly mobile and flexible, and office space often coming at a premium, many large firms plan a space rationalization strategy. Sensor technology paired with big data analytics and visualization today allows for an in-depth understanding of space utilization in our workplaces. These technologies, in combination with the move away from fixed seating plans towards activity-based environments, provide many opportunities to strike a balance between high desk density and employee wellbeing and productivity. Join us as Despina Katsikakis shares use cases and outcomes of deploying IoT-related technologies to improve space utilization, make occupants comfortable and provide personalized assistance in the workplace.
