office accommodation

The average government office is occupied about 25% less efficiently than that in the private sector, according to the 2007 IPD Occupiers Report on Efficiency Standards for Office Space. But office accommodation is not just about the costs of running offices and fitting more staff into less space. The way that we operate our office accommodation is a symbol and expression of the kind of organisation that we are, and potentially how we could help to change the organisational culture for the better. The guidance highlighted here provides a breadth of vision which is unusual in other areas of asset management and includes some private sector views.
