Guest blog by, Leon Papkoff, CEO and Chief Strategist, The CXApp

Considering the rise of the gig economy, organizations are shifting focus to employee engagement in order to attract top talent, keep it, and inspire innovation.

The way employees can move within and interact with physical ‘spaces’ has become a competitive differentiator for creating these immersive experiences. That means innovation and technology have to be integrated at a foundational level.

Leadership Lessons from a 14-Year-Old CEO

Hillary Yip is not your average 14-year-old. In addition to attending school and surviving grueling academic demands on a daily basis, the ninth grader also runs her own business. Growing up as a digital native, Yip, like many other teens, understands the significance of keeping pace with innovation and the digital transformation. That tech-savvy mindfulness prompted her, at age 10, to launch an online social language learning app: Minor Mynas. The idea came to her after a long struggle to learn Mandarin.

Smart Buildings: Growing Focus on Occupant-Centric Workplaces

Guest blog by Daphne Tomlinson, Senior Research Associate, Memoori

One major trend reshaping the smart buildings market is the increased focus on occupant-centric workplaces, which has developed over the past few years. Organizations are looking for new ways to attract and retain the best people and empower them to be productive. Shifts in the landscape of work are driving a greater focus on occupant experiences and interactions with buildings. Although challenging to quantify, the impact of employee surroundings on business performance is receiving increased attention.

Today’s smart buildings enable occupants to:

  • Personalize
  • Find
  • Optimize
  • Communicate
  • Conserve
  • Control
  • Secure

 

Other key trends include:

  • With office densification rates increasing across the world, combined with evidence of poor space utilization and the expectations of occupants for more human and productive environments, the need for workspace management platforms to provide better insight into the repurposing of current workplaces has never been so urgent.
  • While established green building certification schemes such as BREEAM and LEED have begun to cover aspects of health and wellbeing within their assessments, over the past 2 years we have seen other third party-validated assessments gaining traction in the market, including WELL, Fitwel and the Leesman+ certification.

These findings are part of a comprehensive new report from Memoori on occupancy analytics and in-building location-based services.
