BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Robin, the leading hybrid workplace experience company, today unveiled a major upgrade to its software platform at its inaugural Hybrid Work Conference. The enhancements make it easier for companies to build deep employee engagement and optimize their real estate portfolio while still providing flexible and hybrid work schedules most employees want coming out of the pandemic.
“The pandemic sparked a hybrid work revolution that's here to stay,” said Micah Remley, CEO, Robin. “This revolution has shown us that the office isn’t a place to just sit and do work - people can do that at home. Yet, most offices haven’t evolved, which is why return to office numbers are so low. Employees want to use the office to connect with other people, collaborate on projects, learn from others, and in general, get the community and vibrancy they are missing at home. The market-leading innovations we just launched will allow companies to build culture, productivity, and collaboration by bridging the remote/in-person divide.”
Robin’s update delivers hybrid work solutions for:
- Driving In-Person Engagement Through Community Building: Studies suggest strong social connections at work increase productivity. Robin emphasizes and encourages community building by creating meaningful in-person connections based on employee favorites, organizational charts, and social groups. Centered around automated analysis, the platform suggests times, locations, and targeted opt-in activities where employees can meet, work, and foster a stronger sense of belonging. The enhancements also enable Microsoft Teams and Slack users to see who else will be in the office in a given week without ever having to leave those platforms.
- Modern Office Layouts: According to a recent report, most companies are trying to adapt quickly to the new needs presented by hybrid and flexible work. To accommodate these changes, Robin now supports modular design elements that can easily be changed as organizations experiment with office layouts that support new employee needs.
- Data-Driven Insights: With only 11% of businesses utilizing the entire office, Robin’s new Workplace Insights provides increased visibility to help leaders analyze and optimize office utilization. The dashboard showcases building and campus-level data like office space utilization over time, highest and lowest used floors, and predictive trends that consider future growth. These enhancements make building company-specific hybrid work plans backed by real-world data easier.
“We are drilling down into the most impactful pieces of the hybrid work experience,” said Ciara Peter, VP of Product, Robin. “Companies that prioritize connection, consider in-person experiences and make data-driven decisions are the same companies seeing better business outcomes, more engaged employees and vibrant workplace communities.”
The company also introduced the Robin Starter package at the event, a complimentary offering designed to reduce barriers to hybrid workplace strategies that put people before places. Robin Starter allows for up to 25 users and creates a foundation of hybrid work management essentials, including assigned and flexible seating, interactive office maps and wayfinding, desk and room management, guest experiences, and activity planning.
