This workplace report is based on data received from over 5,000 EMEA respondents from across multiple sectors who completed the Colliers global workplace survey. The report looks further ahead towards a medium and long-term horizon (1-3 years), whereby the assumption is that COVID-19 measures will be further loosened and there will be limited or no new infections measured. How and where will we work and what will be the impact on office space requirements for organisations? The report consists of the following two sections:
1. Research results on productivity, desire to work from home after COVID-19, connection, work-life balance and management style
2. The expected impacts for the post COVID-19 office and it’s functionality
It is recognised that our current views on the work from home situation will not necessarily be fully representative of our views in the future. These will adapt and change according to a myriad of health, economic and societal forces. At Colliers, we will continue to measure the pulse of working from home, how these experiences change over time and influence trends, as well as the impact on real estate requirements.
