Facility managers and real estate professionals are driving workplace strategy decisions related to the implementation of distributed work, according to a new survey from IFMA. When asked who was in charge of distributed work decisions, FMs were mentioned by 30% of respondents, coming in slightly behind senior executives who were cited by 38% of respondents.

The survey summarized in IFMA’s report, Distributed Work Revisited, was performed across a variety of industries mainly in the U.S. and Canada. An increase in the number of workers using unassigned space to work and a decrease in the actual allocated space for the shared space were also identified as key trends in the report. The report includes distributed work case studies and a section that summarizes key strategies that FMs can put to use in their own facilities when implementing distributed work programs.
