The benefits that an integrated design process can bring to building projects have been accepted for decades. Assembling a team with diverse expertise to collaboratively work on a project is intuitively understood to be a better approach than designing in a linear, sequential and isolated manner. Tapping people from multiple disciplines – architects, designers, owners, etc. – with a range of perspectives and bringing them together breaks down silos and provides opportunities for communication, collaboration, and issue resolution. When architects, designers, engineers and others work separately on each element of a building, individual goals tend to trump overall project objectives.
As a traditional geologist will research and analyze the stratification of rock and sediment to learn about the earth and its resources, a human resources (HR) professional, or workforce geologist as I see it, should do the same when it comes to the design, planning, and construction of an organization’s workplace.

CoreNet Global spoke with Marianne Flores, Director, Integrated Solutions Center of Excellence at IBM Global Real Estate to hear her views on how cross-collaboration is evolving both within the corporate real estate (CRE) profession, and at IBM specifically.
Orchestrating successful cross-collaboration to enable work is a challenge that corporate real estate (CRE) professionals have been grappling with for years. At face value, the idea of working together across various internal and external groups appears to be a relatively simple concept. Yet it is proving to be a fairly difficult issue for corporates to solve, especially among larger organizations. How are organizations grappling with this important issue?

We are entering a decade of seismic demographic change. The Baby Boomers will leave the workforce and Generation X will march ever closer to retirement age, to be replaced by Generation Y (also known as Millennials) and Generation Z as the dominant generations in the workplace. The impacts of this will permeate through all facets of the real estate sector, from the composition of the workforce to how the nature of work changes; from where people live and work to how they shop and relax.
While these trends will take place across countries, their most acute effects will be felt at the city and local levels. In this report, we analyze four key demographic issues: (1) the aging of Baby Boomers; (2) the progression of Millennials through the life course; (3) the difference between Generation Z and Millennials and (4) the impacts on the world’s cities. This report extends a global viewpoint and takes the perspectives of both occupiers and investors to identify opportunities and challenges that will be encountered by 2030.
The phenomenon of coworking continues its aggressive growth. The global inventory is now approximately 125 million square feet (msf), with more than 50 msf of it located in the United States. The influx of new space is unceasing with frequent announcements of new leases signed by the industry’s largest players. Traditional real estate firms—both investors and services firms—have also entered the sector to provide flexible workplace solutions directly to their clients. This model has been embraced by much of the corporate real estate (CRE) community and is serving a diverse clientele, long comprised of a mix of global enterprises alongside small and medium firms. Learn more through this report based on the results of a survey conducted by CoreNet Global and Cushman & Wakefield.
