ATLANTA, GA (April 17, 2023) — All week long, corporate real estate professionals from around the world will share “how they are working it,” in other words how are they managing the post-pandemic shift in virtual and in-person work in recognition of Corporate Real Estate Week.
Corporate Real Estate Week celebrates the strategic role that the corporate real estate (CRE) profession plays within the corporate infrastructure. Corporate Real Estate Week is also an opportunity to share how the work of CRE professionals shapes the workplace, employee wellness and safety, new technologies for the built environment, and the interplay of urban planning and corporate site location decisions. Track Corporate Real Estate Week activities posted on social media, using the hashtags #CREWEEK23 and #Working It.
Corporate real estate executives have strategic responsibility for their corporations’ total real estate footprint of owned and leased space and generally manage portfolios with millions of sq ft, spanning multiple continents.
They partner with external service providers to acquire, maintain and dispose of real estate.
As the pandemic accelerated trends that were occurring in the workplace, corporate real estate professionals became the point people in their respective organizations managing the change that was occurring. Their value in the corporate enterprise has never been higher.
“Corporate real estate professionals have for many years predicted and implemented trends that have dramatically improved the workplace and corporate success,” said Angela Cain, CEO of CoreNet Global. “The past few years have forced a reckoning with remote and distributed work that corporate real estate professionals were well prepared for, and it will be up to our profession to chart the way forward as companies determine the best solutions for their situation. Corporate Real Estate Week is both an acknowledgement of those contributions and an opportunity to think strategically about the future of work.”
