Depending on your lease agreement you and your staff will be spending the next five to ten years in your tenancy. Due to this length of time It is crucial to ensure that everything is in good condition and working properly. At WSPS we encourage you to conduct a post occupancy evaluation or POE so you can determine how your space is physically used once it is occupied by the members of your staff.
Why Conduct a Post Occupancy Evaluation?
No matter how well your workplace is planned, designed, and arranged, there is still the chance that you might have overlooked an important detail that could affect your company or organisation further down the track. This is why it is recommended that that you take a thorough inspection of your space once you and your staff have moved into your new workplace. Experts recommend conducting a post occupancy evaluation at least six months after you have moved in. This will help you determine if every aspect of your new workplace is working as intended or if there are small mistakes in your workplace strategy that you have failed to correct prior to moving in. It will also help you understand what parts are performing best and what parts need to be modified or changed.
The WSPS Advantage
Conducting a post occupation evaluation takes time and effort. It can also be particularly challenging if you don’t know where and how to start. If you don’t have the time or the resources to carry out the evaluation, don’t worry. At WSPS are more than happy to help and assist you.
