Location planning:
using insight to futureproof the workplace

The pandemic has changed the way we work. With lockdowns necessitating remote working and more and more time passing since employees were in their office, businesses are increasingly focused on the future of the workplace.

But with so many options available – hybrid working, remote working, a return to the office, relocation to a more affordable area – how can businesses know the best approach? Our insights help organisations make informed decisions on locations.

to ensure the best outcome and futureproof your workplace

With so much complexity, a lack of insights can make it difficult to decide on the best approach for your workplace. With the enforced changes as a result of the pandemic, now is a great time for companies to reconsider their approach and gain benefits by embracing the opportunities opened up by new ways of working.

Insights and data to drive your location strategy

If you are working on a location strategy, our Talent Intelligence service is particularly relevant. Whether the changes are driven by the pandemic, or by business expansion or relocation, we can offer research into several core areas:

Providing data about the best approach for your business

There are so many workplace options open to organisations: hybrid working, remote working, relocation to save money and access new talent pools. This makes it difficult to evaluate the impact of each and decide what works best for you.

We are seeing different companies making different decisions – there is no clear consensus on the best approach. And under those circumstances, having the right data and insights is essential to ensure the right approach.

Giving real-time insights into talent availability

Changing ways of working opens up new opportunities to find new talent pools, whether that’s through relocating or by embracing remote working. Our service looks at data from each location, including talent availability, appetite, competition, salary and benefits.

This data ensures that our clients can evaluate each location and understand the impact that relocating may have.

Understanding the impact of remote working

In the wake of the pandemic, many companies were forced to quickly move to remote working. With the ongoing lockdowns and restrictions, many offices remain closed.

While there have been mixed reports about the benefits of home working, employees are increasingly embracing the flexibility, with research from Citrix showing that 75% of employees would take a pay cut to work from home.

It’s therefore important that organisations understand employee expectations and the opportunities that remote working offers, in terms of a wider talent pool, possible reduced salary costs and lower overheads.

Saving money by relocating

Even before the pandemic hit, companies were relocating away from capital cities. This offers many benefits, not least of which are the cost savings available.

Our insights allow you to compare and contrast the talent pool and make location decisions based on real time knowledge of the market. We most frequently do this by comparing talent pool size and availability across a small number of locations, whilst capturing public domain data/news. This ensures that you have the data you need to make an informed decision, mitigating risk.

How we helped one of our clients

Our client was seeking insights to guide the decision about relocating certain business functions to another UK city. They wanted to understand the impact on talent, salary and reward and competition.
