FMJ's How-To Guide features article on how to quantify the impact of workplace change.
WE contributes a monthly column to FM Journal. This month Workplace Evolutionary, Kate Lister shows how to quantify the impact of workplace change on productivity, engagement, and turnover and offers tips on how to design spaces that improve all three.
WeWork’s chief product officer said they’re aiming for a “Google analytics for space,” but their new tech acquisition raises questions about privacy i
The WeWork model offers a rich source of data about what people like and dislike about a space. It also affords them insights about how and when people use various types of spaces. With the purchase of Euclid, they will now have the ability to track even more about how people utilize and move between spaces.
While the media response points to privacy issues, Euclid's technology is one of many that allows for people tracking. Smart phones, smart watches, sound and heat-sensing lightbulbs, programs that can 'watch' what employees are doing, and many more technologies are becoming commonplace.
Working along side HR, IT, and Risk Management, organizations, particularly those in the U.S. who are not governed by GDPR, would be wise to take a deliberate stand on privacy now, before it is too late.

Every year delegates from IFMA travel to D.C. to ask members of Congress how we can help and what our members tell us they need and want.
This year, fellow Workplace Evolutionary Kate Lister joined the delegation led by IFMA's Jeff Johnson to champion for telework legislation, FM apprenticeships, continuing work toward better managing the federal real estate portfolio. In total, we spoke to more than a dozen U.S. senators and congressmen.
If you have something you'd like to say about FM or corporate real estate to your federal, state, or local government representatives, consider pulling IFMA's advocacy group into the conversation. With 24k+, members our voice carries some weight.
