A Break Down Of The Beats By Dre Office Space

In this post, we help give entrepreneurs an idea of how to calculate office space by using the Keyser iPhone app to reverse engineer the Beats By Dre office space.

Beats By Dre Office Space

Using information we gathered from a variety of articles about the Beats By Dre office, this post roughly breaks down their estimated square footage needs as it relates to their office space.

First, here’s a few pieces of information about Beats By Dre that will help us estimate their office space needs.

Required working environments:
– 3 CEO’s
– 4 Executives
– 650 employees across more than a dozen departments from software (Beats Music) to hardware (Beats Electronics)

Beats By Dre Culture

Linkedin Employee Breakdown of Beats By Dre:
– 517 employees (articles mention there are 650 employees, so we’ve increased Linkedin’s employee estimates by 25% across each department. We’ve also created an “other” category for employees that are uncategorized).
– Engineering (66) = 83
– Marketing (47) = 59
– Sales (45) = 56
– Administrative (36) = 45
– Information Technology (35) = 44
– Creative (33) = 42
– Operations (24) = 30
– Product (20) = 25
– Accounting (16) = 20
– Other (195) = 246 (7 “others” are comprised of 3 CEO’s and 4 executives)

Beats By Dre Headquarters

Culture:
– Fans of open desks and collaborative work spaces
– Want work to feel like a daytime disco
– Want the lobby to double up as a place for all-hands meetings with the whole company

Office Space Assumptions:

Here’s where we’ll make some major assumptions for the sake of getting a rough square footage estimate from the iPhone app.

Large Office Space Calculation: Beats By Dre Engineers work collaboratively, so let’s assume 4 engineers for every Large office space. 83 engineers with 4 engineers per space would equal 21 large offices.

: Beats By Dre places great emphasis on it’s marketing, so let’s assume marketing teams are separated out into three employees and enjoy medium sized offices. With 59 marketing employees separated into teams of 3, Beats would need about 20 medium sized Medium Office Space Calculationoffices.

: Let’s assume that each IT employee has their own individual small office space. (44 total employees)

: Since the Beats By Dre commercials are really impressive, let’s assume the Creatives each have a medium office space (42 total).

Small Office Space Estimate: Let’s assume the Beats product team works in teams of 5 and occupies large office spaces. This would mean 5 more large office spaces, bringing our total up to 26.

: For the uncategorized employees (according to Linkedin’s breakdown), let’s assume that these other employees are assigned standard office space. Since it’s unlikely every uncategorized will get a solo office, let’s break up this group into 67 teams of three (since the standard office comfortably fits three, and the space is collaborative), and let’s give 38 employees their own solo office. This works out to be about 105 standard offices.

: According to FastCo Design, the Beats By Dre office includes 3 CEO’s and 4 Executives.

Medium Office Space Square Foot Calculation Standard Office Space Square Feet Calculation C-Suite Office Space Calculation Executive Office Space Calculation Beats By Dre Corner Office

That’s about it for our office space assumptions. Let’s move on to our workstation assumptions based on the Beats By Dre employee breakdown.

Workstation Assumptions:

With our office space assumptions, we made rough square footage estimates based on the Beats By Dre engineering, marketing, information technology, executive level, other, creative and product teams. This leaves us with the sales, accounting, and operations departments to calculate office space requirements.

Call Center Office Space Calculation: Let’s assume that Sales is call center related, and all 56 sales people have their own desk.

: Let’s assume Administrative employees all have medium workstations. (45 total)

: Let’s assume operations all have small workstations – 30 in all.

: Let’s assume accounting likes their space, and each accountant has a large workstation – 20 stations total.

Medium Workstation Calculations large workstation office space calculation small-workstation office space calculation

That’s about it for our workstation and office space assumptions. Next up on our office space calculation is conference and training rooms.

Beats By Dre Workstation

Conference + Training Room Calculation

According to FastCo Design, Beats By Dre has 10 conference and breakout rooms. Let’s assume that three of them are “large” (Seats 16-20 people), three of them are “medium” (seats 8-10 people) and four of the conference rooms are “small” (seats 4-6).

Common Areas

Beats By Dre Coffee
According to FastCo Design, the Beats By Dre lobby doubles up as a place to greet visitors and for Beats President Luke Wood’s legendary all-hands meetings where the whole company gathers in the space.

Assuming that each of the 650 employees need at least 11.5 square feet to feel comfortable during an all-hands meeting, the large reception area is going to be…well, large.

Also, with Beats By Dre occupying two buildings, there are multiple reception areas throughout the campus. We’ve included five additional small reception areas in the calculation.

Copy + Storage Areas

This is where the assumptions get fun for Beats By Dre. Without having ever visited the campus, we’d like to imagine loads of storage areas filled with Beats By Dre products. We’ll also assume one large and one small copy area for every 100 employees.

Visitor + Service Areas

Beats By Dre Wellness Area
As we can see from the photos, Beats By Dre has invested significant resources in their visitor and service areas. A coffee bar, large break areas and a fitness area are just a few of the calculations we’ll incorporate into office space requirements.

Server Rooms

Last but not least, we calculate our server room needs. Since Beats By Dre doesn’t have drastically large IT needs, let’s dedicate two large server rooms for our office space calculation.

Submit and Calculate Totals

Based on our office space assumptions and estimates, it’s time to submit and calculate the Beats By Dre office space needs in terms of square footage. The Keyser iPhone app will automatically calculate hallways circulation square footage, as well as load factor, usable space and the total amount of rentable square feet. This calculation is especially useful to help narrow down your office space search.

Without further ado, here is our reversed engineered calculation of the Beats By Dre office: 105,000 Square Feet.

Selfless Service Spotlight: Keogh Health Connection

Keogh Health Connection Selfless ServiceTo help champion the concept of selfless service, Keyser is shining the spotlight on organizations who are committed to serving others. Today, we’d like to feature Keogh Health Connection and how they are practicing selfless service through the work that they do.

Keogh Health Connection connects underserved individuals and families in need to healthcare and community resources. Keogh collaborates with many agencies that have established a trust relationship with working-poor families. Keogh focuses on agencies that help move families forward towards self-sufficiency, such as Head Start, training, and educational programs.

Here’s our interview with Saundra Johnson, Executive Director of Keogh Health Connection, on how their organization practices selfless service.

Do you have a specific example or a story of selfless service that has happened at your organization?

The stories provided below highlight the work that the Keogh staff perform every day selflessly serving others:

Keogh Health Connection“I had just gotten laid off when my daughter developed a very serious medical condition and I had no idea where to go for help. Then I met with a Keogh representative at Maricopa County Head Start. She helped me get through everything I needed to do, right there that afternoon on her computer. She explained the differences between the different healthcare programs, took me through the websites to go to and where to shop for the healthcare plan that worked best for us. She even helped me put together the information I needed to get us enrolled. It was the perfect end to an overwhelming time for me.”

Keogh Health Connection“I had a stroke, lost my job and couldn’t afford my insurance anymore. I’d been healthy my whole life and never saw it coming. Now, I have no feeling on my left side and have a difficult time using my computer. But that didn’t stop the Keogh people from helping me get what I needed. They explained how the new healthcare marketplace works; how to get my password logged in; how to shop for the plan I can afford, and how to get it all done. My new plan costs about half as much as the one I used to have. All I can say is thank you Keogh for helping this grateful guy.”

Keogh Health Connection“They never gave up on us. My son is seriously disabled. When budget cuts came along, we lost the care and rehab program he was on. We tried six times to enroll for a plan on the healthcare marketplace website with no success. Then we found a Keogh representative at the disability center we used to go to. She was relentless, constantly positive and just wouldn’t let go until we were accepted and enrolled. Who says no one cares anymore?”

What are your organization’s values, and how does the idea of selfless service fit into those values?

At the core of our work is respect for every individual no matter their circumstances. Working through collaborations and exhibiting compassion and caring the Keogh staff strive to give people opportunities to become self-sufficient and create stronger communities.

Early on we recognized that we had to be in the places where needy people live, work and already go for care and assistance. Environments where they don’t feel threatened, intimidated or embarrassed. Since initiating services in 2004, more than 200,000 people have been touched by our direct and indirect programs. Many who would otherwise go without the basic health and human services. Keogh’s staff exhibit selfless service every day understanding that each person has a unique situation and finding creative ways to help.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with the world about the idea of selfless service?

Non-profit work is often challenging and requires creative, enthusiastic people who care about others and want the world to be a better place for everyone. I am personally blessed to work with a group of people that share the belief that the work that we do every day is the foundation for positive change even if only for one person.

Keyser is a commercial real estate advisory firm that is transforming the business world through selfless service. Our goal is to prove once and for all that the most self-interested business strategy in the world is to be of selfless service to others. Contact us today to see how we can be of service to you.

Book Of The Month: Getting Naked

Getting Naked Book ReviewGetting Naked: A Business Fable About Shedding The Three Fears That Sabotage Client Loyalty by Patrick Lencioni

Without a question, this is the best business book I have read all year (the title is pretty catchy too), and is a must read for anyone in business providing sales or service to another organization.

Put simply, in a very understandable, widely applicable type of way, Patrick highlights how and why vulnerability (described as being “naked” with clients) is the best client strategy around. He describes how most “consultants” “service providers” “vendors” etc. spend so much of their time selling, vs. just rolling up their sleeves and focusing on how to help the client from the first interaction forward. His basic premise is that by focusing on selling, rather than just serving, consultants miss the key part of their job-consulting-and therefore lose out on valuable long-term client relationships.

In a recent interview about the book, the author Patrick stated: “People spend most of their lives trying to avoid awkward and painful situations –which is why it is no surprise that we are all susceptible to the three fears that sabotage client loyalty.”

He describes these three fears are the primary fears that service providers wrestle with that keep them from being vulnerable and rob all their effectiveness and power in relationships with their clients. They are:

1) Fear of Losing the Business – No service provider wants to lose clients or revenue. Interestingly, it is this very notion that prevents many service providers from having the difficult conversations that actually build greater loyalty and trust. Clients want to know that their service providers are more interested in helping succeed in business than protecting their revenue source.

2) Fear of Being Embarrassed – This fear is rooted in pride. No one likes to publicly make mistakes, endure scrutiny or be embarrassed. Naked service providers are willing to ask questions and make suggestions even if those questions and suggestions turn out to be laughably wrong. Clients trust naked service providers because they know that they will not hold back their ideas, hide their mistakes, or edit themselves to save face.

3) Fear of Being Inferior – Similar to the previous fear, this one is rooted in ego. Fear of being inferior is not about being intellectually wrong (as in Fear of being Embarrassed) it is about preserving social standing with the client. Naked service providers are able to overcome the need to feel important in the eyes of their client and basically do whatever a client needs to help the client improve – even if that.

I highly encourage anyone trying to develop and build long term client relationships to read this book.

Upwards and Onwards.

Top 5 Random Acts Of Selfless Service

Random Acts Of KindnessSomething about the holidays dramatically increases the number of random acts of kindness. This week, we heard about so many acts of selfless service that we decided to do a roundup, and ask you to contribute your own act of selfless service in the comments.

Here are five random acts of selfless service.

Random Acts Of Pasta

This may be a viral marketing tactic from Olive Garden, but the idea is clever. The concept: Olive Garden offered an unlimited pasta pass for $100, which entitled cardholders to unlimited pasta for 7 weeks. A man buys the pass, and proceeds to use it 125 times to feed friends, family and homeless people.

Watch the video and learn more about this man’s experiences at http://www.randomactsofpasta.com/

Selfless Service Spotlight: Gabriel’s Angels

Gabriel's Angels selfless serviceTo help champion the concept of selfless service, Keyser is shining the spotlight on organizations who are committed to serving others. Today, we’d like to feature the Gabriel’s Angels and how they are practicing selfless service through the work that they do.

The mission of Gabriel’s Angels is to deliver healing pet therapy to at-risk children, nurturing their emotional development and enhancing the quality of their lives forever.

Here’s our interview with Samantha Hagan, Board Chair of Gabriel’s Angels, on how their organization practices selfless service.

Selfless service is loosely defined as a service that is performed without any expectation of something in return. How does your organization selflessly serve others?

Gabriel’s Angels mission is to deliver healing pet therapy to at-risk children, nurturing their emotional development and enhancing the quality of their lives forever. Registered therapy teams, made up of an individual and his/her companion pet, engage children to develop and improve healthy core behaviors that are critical to normal development.

Gabriel’s Angels currently services over 13,700 abused, neglected and at-risk children and youth in Phoenix, Tucson, and Northern Arizona. Currently Gabriel’s Angels has 175 registered volunteer Therapy Teams and 51 helping hands delivering pet therapy to over 100 agencies. All services are free of charge to the agency and the children. Gabriel’s Angels believes the bond between a therapy dog and a child is strong enough to break the cycle of violence. Some of the partner agencies that are currently served are Child Crisis Center, Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix, Florence Crittenton Services of Arizona, UMOM, Casa de los Ninos, Emerge!, Our Family Services, and Boys and Girls Club of Prescott Valley.

Do you have a specific example or a story of selfless service that has happened at your organization?

There are so many to share! My personal story is through my volunteering as a helping hand with Golden Retriever team Tucker and his mom Leslie. I assist them every other Wednesday at FACES the full day center of Crisis Nursery. We visit 8 classrooms of toddlers and pre-school aged children. When Tucker first arrives at FACES a child may be angry and violent not wanting to be near Tucker or afraid. However when a child sees how we take all care of Tucker, petting him, giving him water, brushing his teeth, and reading his books the child learns to no longer be angry, violent or afraid. As time goes by when we come to visit the children they are smiling, exited and wanting to take good care of Tucker. Seeing the changes and development to each child’s behavior as Tucker has come to visit has been nothing short of amazing.

What are your organization’s values, and how does the idea of selfless service fit into those values?

I believe this goes back to the mission of Gabriel’s Angels to deliver pet therapy and its commitment to someday serve ALL children in need. Its guiding philosophy is that Gabriel’s Angels is driven by the passionate belief that the unconditional love of a dog can heal a child.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with the world about the idea of selfless service?

Volunteering with an organization like Gabriel’s Angels is so enriching to your own life in many ways that you will not realize the joy it brings until you give back. Especially finding out how to volunteer in your own community and seeing how you can make a difference in the lives of others, I encourage everyone to find out what you can do to help others.

Just a note about my volunteering with Gabriel’s Angels – I joined the board in May 2000 after meeting the CEO and founder Pam Gaber. I heard her story of starting the organization with her dog Gabriel and how she volunteered with the kids at Crisis Nursery. I immediately fell in love with the organization and its pet therapy programs here in my community serving kids in need. I wanted to know how I could immediately get involved.

I am currently serving as Board Chair and Helping Hand volunteer with team Tucker at FACES the full day center of Crisis Nursery. What impresses me about Gabriel’s Angels is how well financially the organization is run by Pam and the staff it’s more like a business than a non-profit. We also have an outstanding and highly engaged Board of Directors. The organization receives no government funding it’s funded through public donations and grants. Gabriel’s Angels qualifies for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit.

Each year Gabriel’s Angels has two highlight events; Unleash the Love Breakfast, May 1st, 2015 at JW Marriott Desert Ridge and Salud! wine dinner and auction in October. In 2015 Gabriel’s Angels will celebrate its 15th year!

Thank you for allowing me to share Gabriel’s Angels.

We live and breathe this mission and get up every morning and work excitedly towards it.

Keyser Operating Principles
“What differentiates Keyser from most professional environments is that everyone in the organization is truly committed to the success of everyone else in the firm. This “we” not “me” focus that permeates the culture produces a no-stress environment that allows professionals to fully focus on the important things and not sweat the plethora of small-minded stuff that weighs down many professionals in other corporate cultures.” – Darius Green

Commercial Real Estate Advisory Firm
“I love how many ideas about how to improve the company are always being shouted out, emailed out, or brought up in our meetings. With the level of coachability and openness everyone has, these ideas are frequently adopted and if they’re not, they’re fun to talk about, daydream about, and laugh about.” – Ian Davie

Keyser Commercial Real Estate Firm
“The Keyser culture is not something one adheres to from 9:00 to 5:00, it is a way of life and becomes a part of us. Every team member’s objective is to make the others the best version of themselves they can be and will go above and beyond to ensure this happens. The word “family” is loosely used in other organizations, but here at Keyser we truly are brothers and sisters and strive to achieve greatness together, as one team.” – Noah Barrasso

Office Space Planning
“The brilliant thing about Keyser is that we have a system that enables ‘altruistic givers’ to have success. Knowing how to give, serve, and love in such a way where you can also produce tremendous results makes Keyser uniquely capable of changing the world.” – Blake Hardison

Keyser HQ 39
“As an organization, Keyser truly encourages and enables all of its team members to provide an exceptional level of client service that builds the kind of long-term relationships that are so crucial to sustained success. The best interests of both the client and the other Keyser team members are always considered before any key decision is made. As a result, win-win situations are the norm, rather than the exception.” – Chris Ray

Keyser Office Space Planning
“At many companies, the intention of management is to extract every ounce of productivity from its employees at as low a price point as possible. At Keyser, each member’s personal and professional growth are fundamental to the success of the company. Each member’s development is fostered through regular coaching, support, and guidance. The result to which we are committed is a company of fulfilled individuals who find great joy at being the best in their field.” – Clint Hardison

Keyser Office Space
“Working for Keyser is like a breath of fresh air. It is a positive environment where collaboration and thinking outside the box is not only encouraged it is celebrated.” – Erin Harper
