Report: The Evolving Workplace: How U.S. Office Space is Changing
A successful workplace strategy provides employee choice in workspace options and delivers a solution that is custom fit for the company, its business and its employee culture.
While in the office, people spend less than 50% of their workday at their desk; the majority of time is spent working with others (either in a meeting, face-to-face or virtually).
Workplaces that allow employees the ability to self-select their work location resulted in 10%-15% higher employee satisfaction levels compared to those that did not.
By creating workplace solutions that reflect how people work and what they value, organizations can drive measurable improvements in employee satisfaction and business productivity while reflecting their brands and value to customers.
Report: Emerging and Frontier Markets: Assessing Risk and Opportunity
There is no doubt that today's global property markets present both great opportunity and significant risk. Established and mature markets are providing safety and security for labor and capital, but many of the economies in these markets are growing slower than expected and competition is at an all time high.
To that end, emerging and frontier markets present some of the most significant opportunities for occupiers and investors. In this publication, CIS's second global report on emerging and frontier property markets, Cushman & Wakefield compares the risk and opportunity in 42 of the most sought after secondary locations so that occupiers and investors can gain a better understanding of which markets provide the best opportunity for their organizations. Our hope is that you find this information useful in your forward-looking real estate strategies.

By 2017, online sales could account for more than one-tenth of all U.S. retail sales. To keep up with growing demand,
e-commerce companies are making major investments in big-box facilities that function both as warehouses to store goods and distribution centers to fulfill online orders. Traditional bricks-and-mortar retailers are shifting inventory held
