Globally, the COVID-19 crisis has dramatically impacted the way we work, and we believe this shift will affect not only how we work in the short-term but will have far-reaching effects on work and the workplace. In our report ‘Exploring the post-COVID Workplace’ published in 2020, we shared our data on how organisations and people are experiencing remote working. We also explored the post-COVID workplace and discussed how the physical workplace, technology and behaviours might change. Almost a year later, coronavirus is still here. Organisations have started strategising, resizing and rebalancing their offices to suit the need of a post-COVID world.
In this report we will share insights on how organisations are strategising for the future. Colliers is working with many organisations to develop post-COVID Workplace strategies. Besides sharing common themes from our projects we would like to share data from the Colliers Workplace Expert tool.
Workplace Expert is a free online tool developed by Colliers that organisations use to identify what workplace best suits their business in the future. Workplace Expert asks questions about business characteristics, goals, brand and future work locations. Based on these inputs it provides high level insights of what work environment in what workplace type and size best suits an organisation. More than 4,000 professionals globally have used Workplace Expert during the pandemic. Here we will share a snapshot of the data gathered in regards to business goals and vision of remote working.
