Not all real estate savings are created equal. To help decision-makers determine where cost savings will be most valuable, Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL)—a global professional services company specializing in real estate—established the 3-30-300 formula. The premise is that there is an average order of magnitude for a company's cost per square foot—$3 in utilities, $30 in rent, and $300 in payroll.

A 10% increase in energy efficiency translates to a $.30/sq ft cost savings. A 10% reduction in rent yields a $3.00 cost savings. However, a productivity improvement of 10% equates to $30/sq ft of value.

This formula demonstrates why changes to the human experience has the greatest impact. Watch the video to learn more.
