The Future of Work – Webinar

How this will impact your real estate footprint

The pandemic radically changed how we view business and the workplace — we can no longer look to the past to understand how business success will be achieved in the future. Every aspect of how, where and when business gets done must be reimagined.

This webinar will kickstart your workplace strategy, provide insights into ways of leveraging potential real estate savings and better prepare your organisation for success in the future.

It answered the big questions including:

  • What will the future workplace look like?
  • How will the design of the workplace need to change?
  • How can offices adapt now to better support remote working?

More than 200 people tuned in to our 1-hour webinar special on Tuesday 8th December from 11:00 am (AEDT) to gain real-world insights from workplace strategists who have helped companies such as Eftpos, ELMO, Cisco Meraki, Wesfarmers, The Guardian, RSL Lifecare, hipages, and many more, create thriving workplaces in the now, and the next.

Experts discussed the evolving landscape of the office environment with regards to physical requirements, exploring:

  • The impact COVID has had on the way your people want to work in order to achieve optimum productivity
  • How to structure your workspace in both the short and long term, with post COVID considerations
  • Rationalising real estate through remote working whilst maintaining culture and enhancing wellbeing
  • Unveiling a unique space calculator that will scenario model potential real estate savings

As restrictions start to ease and we begin the return to the workplace, these discussions are vital to successfully navigating the new normal.
