A Day in the Life of 2040’s Workforce

Journey into 2040 with Tica, a millennial, who will share her experience of a typical workday. Starting in her smart home, joining on the daily commute, and going into the smart office you’ll experience the world through her eyes. What will it be like when over 60% of the world’s population live in cities, when mobility is the norm, and the Monday to Friday workweek is a thing of the past? What are the implications for real estate?  How will we want to work? How can we build workplaces for the user in a world where work, shop and play is blurred? How will we navigate spaces in the future? And what does this mean for commercial real estate? To build a better future, we have to imagine it first. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Realise that the majority of current office buildings aren't suitable for the future and there will be no loyalty to new office supply.
  • Think differently about how to develop workspace with eye towards the future.
  • Understand that rapid advances in smart building technology will compress the life cycles of buildings. Begin to think ahead on strategies to maintain occupancy and sustain rental levels as obsolescence can be accelerated.
