In a time of unprecedented uncertainty for real estate decision-makers, one thing is certain: We are migrating to a workplace ecosystem balancing home, office, and 3rd places. For companies whose ecosystem will be weighted toward a return to the office, the best way to bring people back is unclear. Some are using mandates; some are using choice; but nearly all are rethinking the space people will come back to. As a corporate real estate (CRE) leader, how do you know what will really work, and where to invest? In this session you will learn how to replace conjecture and subjectivity with an evidence-based, data-driven approach to measure and align the drivers of employee's workplace experience with operational investments. Join a thought-provoking, interactive discussion on how HP developed a return to office program focused on creating an inspiring work environment for their employees.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the connection between workplace experience and operational investments and how it has the potential to be the single biggest value driver.

  • Learn how HP engaged their employees and leveraged data to drive a future vision and earmark operational investments in amenities and workplace improvements that will create an inspiring employee experience through their future workplace.

  • Understand what the five key questions are for RTO planning.
