The post-COVID 19 office: Setting the pace of transformation

CRE report website jan jaap boogard hero

The greatest surprise of the pandemic for many leaders has been the realisation that their organisation can work remotely, be productive and stay connected. This awakening has started a new and essential conversation for many organisations as they explore work, their work processes, work practices and the workplace. If people can be effective working from home, then what is the purpose of the workplace? How can we leverage our real estate and workplaces to best support our organisational and cultural goals?

We see our clients taking three main approaches to developing and implementing post-pandemic workplace strategies that support their objectives. The choice depends on the wider organisational strategy and on real estate related events and opportunities, such as lease breaks.

In our ‘CRE - Our industry today, tomorrow & beyond’ report we look at the three main approaches and share our perspectives on where these changes start, and how far should they go to deliver the optimal results.
