Workplace strategy – the next wave

The recent Jones Lang LaSalle’s Global Corporate Real Estate (CRE) Survey raised some interesting issues on the future of the office workplace and how office tenants plan to use their space in the future.

The main findings were:

  • improving productivity of the office environment
  • improving the quality of the office environment
  • improving flexibility
  • enabling remote working

Separate teleresearch by Metropolis over the last year had found that the number one aim of facilities managers is the sub-letting of surplus space, although this has recently seen a shift towards concerns on having enough space for expansion. As a result, a small but increasing number of firms are looking at taking more floors in their existing building.
