Originally, 65% of ENGIE employees had fixed desks, leaving more than 30% of people daily searching for a productive workspace. Employee feedback showed that many encountered difficulties when looking for available workspaces and ad-hoc meeting areas. The frustrations were mainly due to a lack of accessible insights, ambiguity about available spaces, and limited sharing culture.
The goal of the partnership with Mapiq was to optimize office space usage and sharing. The objectives included reducing the time and effort needed to find collaboration spaces and focus workspaces as well as simplifying meeting room bookings.
Mapiq installed sensors throughout the building transforming static floor plans into an interactive map. ENGIE employees can now see desk and meeting room availability in real-time, making it effortless to book workspaces anytime or have ad-hoc meetings.
Additionally, workplace leaders are empowered to make informed decisions thanks to an analytics dashboard that provides office occupancy insights, showing peak hours, and popular workspaces.
