As the workplace remains under pressure to "evolve", we review the current and forecasted trends and drivers for the workplace.
The workplace has been evolving since inception, but never so quickly as in today’s ever advancing, technologically enhanced world of flexibility and innovation. It should be expected that the workplace we know and experience today will be vastly different in a couple of years and possibly unrecognisable by 2022. How will this change come about, what will be the instigators and drivers of the change and what does it mean for landlords and occupiers?

By bringing together our insights and experiences from every corner of the world, we have identified five major shifts we believe businesses need to make in the workplace over the next five years, contributing to the development of the workplace of the future.
