The pandemic accelerated trends in how organizations use their workplace to create a competitive advantage. While many theorize how the pandemic will dramatically change how we work in the future, sentiment among office occupiers varies greatly. CBRE has been actively shaping the future of work across the industry and within their organization. The panel will candidly share CBRE's own journey and lessons learned. Through this session, they hope to share the journey taken to create a future go-forward strategy. And, they want to hear your perspectives and learn from similar challenges and opportunities you are facing every day.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand key elements to plan for a successful workplace strategy development, including leadership alignment, research activities, steps taken to reach recommendations, how to communicate decisions, and implement new policies.

  • Identify key challenges and opportunities businesses are facing as it relates to planning for the future, define what is changing, and begin to formulate their own next steps needed to continue evolving their own workplace strategies.
  • Define workstyle personas, recognizing there is not a one size fits all approach to every business or every employee.
