Occupancy by Day of Week
Kastle recently started tracking occupancy by day to identify differences in office attendance throughout the week, building on its Back to Work Barometer, which provides weekly occupancy updates.
The chart below shows the occupancy variability by day, with the figures reflecting the daily averages for the preceding four weeks, compared to the daily averages both in August of 2021 and pre-pandemic. Recent data shows that Mondays and Fridays have much lower office attendance rates than the middle-of-the-week days, compared to before the pandemic.
Figures in this chart reflect the percentage of workers in the office compared to typical, pre-pandemic levels, using a baseline of three weeks in February of 2020. Using a baseline that includes this kind of natural variability means that it’s possible to see numbers slightly above 100% in the resulting ratios.
