Webinar: Future of the Workplace -  Post-Pandemic Trends in Office & Industrial Space

September 30 | 11:00 AM Eastern | Register Today

The global pandemic has fundamentally altered how and where people need to be located in order to complete their work. As the world has changed, so too has the future of the workplace. The work from home experiment turned out to be more successful than anyone thought and cultural norms around the importance of working in the office have changed.

Organizations are no longer just questioning WHEN their employees will return to the office, but WHO will return and at what frequency. This determination is front of mind for all organizations and begs the question on how much and what kind of space will be needed in the future to accommodate a hybrid work environment.

Please join us for a discussion with Brad Wilner and Manny Fitzgerald from CBRE on “The Future of the Workplace”.
