Accommodation is not an isolated thing, but has a strong influence on all management areas. Through a business approach, accommodation offers an opportunity to support the strategic goals of organizations and serve the interests of users. Accommodation helps create lasting competitive advantage.
“Questions about accommodation are usually characterized by their ad hoc nature, while in fact they are part of the long-term business strategy.” (René Stevens)
Many organizations see accommodation as a necessary evil. It only gets the attention of management:
- If personnel grow so fast that accommodation cannot be dragged on;
- The company is doing badly and is looking for cost reductions;
- Or if the management of the building has gotten out of hand due to insufficient maintenance reservation that a (financial) mismatch with the real estate market has arisen.
- Only a few realize that the right housing makes an important contribution to the realization of the organizational goals.
