As part of its digital workplace strategy, leading insurer AXA uses IoT sensors to measure space occupancy and workplace comfort. This data is then captured in a smart building platform that performs real-time analytics. It visualizes on floor plans and dashboards how the space is being used throughout the day, and how the workplace can better support employees.
At AXA’s Brussels headquarters, people no longer have fixed desks. Instead, AXA gives staffers a choice of spaces that are optimized for different activities. In this flexible working environment, there is no need for more than 6 workstations per 10 employees. The result is not just increased space efficiency and reduced costs, but also a highly comfortable and agile workplace that stays up-to-date with the evolving needs of workers.
