We’re going to more meetings than ever before – 11m a day just in the US. But are we just wasting our time?
The Bytesized Guide to Resource Management 2017 examines the changing world of work and the options available to resource managers to help control them.
And it counts the truly colossal cost of poor space management.
Using statistics compiled by Meetings King, the guide reveals that 37% of all employee time is spent in meetings.
With that amount of time and money committed, it’s crucial that every meeting is run at peak efficiency – yet estimates show that 25% of that meeting time is wasted by:
- people being late,
- finding rooms still occupied
- getting rooms set up
Just do the maths….it’s a productivity nightmare. In short, the cost of poor space management is simply not acceptable or sustainable in the modern workplace, especially not in these challenging times for all businesses.
NFS is privileged to sponsor this year’s Bytesized Guide and to contribute to its examination of the latest technology solutions to streamline the workplace as it evolves into a more flexible staff environment.
Our Rendezvous meeting room and desk scheduling technology helps staff identify the available workspace they need and book it effortlessly via a mobile device.
It reduces wasted space – one multinational utility using Rendezvous cut external bookings of meeting rooms dramatically and saved $100,000 in three months.
And it saves staff time and frustration. They can book meeting facilities including video conferencing, AV and even catering in the same single transaction – and if arrangements change, everyone is notified automatically, even across time zones.
