The technology industry is presently experiencing a shift with some companies focusing on high profitability, cash flow and cost efficiencies while maintaining productivity. Others are extending their virtual real estate portfolio to respond to employees' interest in working remotely. Finally, Silicon Valley is also seeing employees slow down with jumping from one company to another for more income. What does that mean not only for attrition but also for the office reconfiguration and utilization rate, and employee attrition? Gloria Mamwa, CoreNet Global Chair, will provide an introduction and some insights on the overall state of the marketplace from her global perspective. Beth Choulas from Toast and Matthew Folsom from Spotify will share with the audience what each of their companies is presently implementing at this time. They will also discuss with Arsh Chaudhry, Space Matrix CEO and moderator the variations they are presently experiencing throughout their global real estate portfolios and the effect on their overall workplace strategies.

Key Takeaways:

  • Identify the new workplace expectations, policies, and approaches of other CRE leaders and organizations from both research and project stories.

  • Share what's working, what's not, and what's missing as we return to the office and settle into new work patterns

  • Discover from the panelists what other organizations are doing, unexpected surprises, pain points, and lessons learned as they experiment with new workplace approaches to bring employee empowerment and a hybrid work model into reality.
