For large organisiations the property portfolio is typically a multi-layered and complex beast. Its not only a home for your staff its a key operational asset.
From that perspective getting the right mix, that is, fit for purpose, cost effective, aligned to your brand values and at the same time future-proof, can be a daunting prospect.
Like maximising the performance of your staff, maximising the performance of your property accommodation portfolio is far more complicated than simple cost management.
For example, well managed property can also add value to your business through increased productivity, reduced staff turnover and absenteeism and by reduced risks and insurance costs.
Additionally, by managing property more strategically you can enhance your brand to both customers and to potential new staff.
Conversely, poorly managed property can actually detract from your brand and most importantly impede actual business performance.
This then begs the question, if property is such a large part of the business cost base and there are all these potential benefits and pitfalls, then why doesn’t it get the same level of management attention as HR or IT?
