This report was authored by and published by on March 4, 2022. Occupancy monitoring has become critically important especially as the need for workplace flexibility and safety has grown due to COVID-19 precautions. The report discusses the need to know how many people are in their buildings at any given time, who has been through the building, and what contacts they may have had. It suggests managers rethink the way their space is planned based on utilization data. Accommodating the new trend of hybrid workspaces depends not only on instant access to occupancy levels but historical data on space utilization. The report shows many of the sensors and software applications that provide the data for better occupant usage of the space and additional security and wayfinding capabilities to improve productivity.
