Sign #4: Under-utilized spaces

It’s a fact that much of workspaces are under-utilized. Studies show that only somewhere between 40-60% of desks are used at any given time.

Unused desks, and empty rooms is something you pay for but don’t use. You have an opportunity for a significant ROI when you invest in an agile work environment.
