BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Robin, the hybrid workplace platform, today launched the industry’s first and only Global Hybrid Trends dashboard. This new tool gives employers visibility into where other companies of the same size, industry and region stand on building the flexible workplace environments that employees demand. The new feature combines real-time data from thousands of companies globally with advanced analytics to provide benchmarking scores that better inform flexible workplace policies and goal setting.
Most information on hybrid work is limited to data sets that cannot be compared to specific company characteristics or that quickly become out-of-date in today’s rapidly changing work environment. Leveraging the Workplace Index, which provides real-time data on workplace utilization around the world, Robin’s new Global Hybrid Trends dashboard takes the analysis to the next level, giving admins micro and macro levels of comparison.
“Our customers are at the forefront of workplace innovation, but given the global shift to hybrid and flexible work is still relatively new, uncertainty remains. We’re constantly fielding questions from organizations looking to know where they stand in their hybrid journey,” said Micah Remley, CEO, Robin. “This is why we’ve expanded our Workplace Index to give our customers unprecedented visibility into what others are doing when it comes to empowering flexible workplaces. The new dashboard is truly the foundation of a workplace strategy and can help inform everything from HR and office policies to facility investment.”
Recent research from Robin found a steady return to the office in the wake of the Omicron COVID variant, with an 18% increase in the total number of US and European employees working from the office in Q1 2022. While these numbers show progress, the gap between executive expectation and employee preference remains. With Global Hybrid Trends, leaders wondering if their workplace policies are in line with their industry or region gain the ability to see their progress against others, leading to more strategic planning and a better understanding of how to implement flexible work arrangements that both drive company results and increase workforce productivity and satisfaction.
With the addition of Global Hybrid Trends, Robin customers can now take advantage of a full suite of analytics, including:
- Workplace Analytics: Detailed view of office and space utilization, office density over time, types of office usage (assigned, hot, and hoteled desking), and space usage by work area.
- Employee Experience Analytics: Daily sentiment of office users, pointing to trends across time and resource ranges.
- Global Hybrid Trends and Benchmark Analysis: Ongoing global hybrid work trends, segmented by company size, industry, and region. Robin’s latest feature allows users to benchmark their own hybrid statistics against other companies.
- Exports: Export all space, workplace, and people data into existing BI tools to build deeper insights dashboards.
“The workplace solution stack is varied, and companies face the challenge of combining disparate data sources to help make informed business decisions when it comes to utilizing the hybrid office,” said Craig Durr, Senior Analyst, Wainhouse Research. “Robin’s approach makes office leaders act like data scientists, allowing them to view various comparisons that help drive forward their hybrid workplace strategy for better employee engagement and productivity.”
