Global Workplace Analytics’ proprietary Workplace Savings Calculatorâ„¢ and custom business cases demonstrate how agile workplace strategies and workplace flexibility can: improve employee morale, reduce work-life conflict, increase productivity, reduce greenhouse gases, increase profitability, increase wellness, improve employee engagement, help attract and retain talent, increase shareholder value, improve disaster preparedness, provide greater employment opportunities for hard to reach populations, and much more.

Our models have helped thousands of US, UK, and Canadian employers make the business case for new ways of working.

Our work is heavily research-based. We have synthesized and cataloged more than 4,000 studies and news items on a variety of agile workplace strategies such as hoteling, co-working, telework, home-working, smart working, telecommuting, outsourcing, open office, results/outcomes-based management, and flexible work.

Our research and white papers have been cited in the Harvard Business Review, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and hundreds of other publications.
