Return to Office Workbook: A Guide to Preparing your Employees’ Return

RTO Workbook article 1536x1040

A successful re-entry following the COVID-19 pandemic requires a cross-functional team spanning executive leadership, real estate and facilities management professionals, HR, communications, IT, legal, and other stakeholders. In addition, there are key sources of data that you must now consider such as employee surveys, managed sentiment, space utilization, and who should be in the office or work virtually.

Colliers and Blue Skyre IBE have partnered to develop a workbook to assist your team as you plan and manage a successful return to the office.

Learn more about the tactical recommendations, case studies and insights to support your facilities and real estate teams.
