This panel discussion will discuss what has worked and not worked with ensuring a safe and healthy return to the workplace. What trends will stick in terms of real estate, facilities, health & safety and technology? How do workplace trends impact real estate and facilities teams in the future? What should we prioritize when building and executing our plans?
Zach Dunn, VP of Customer Experience & Co-Founder, Robin
The traditional workplace is no more. Between Covid-19 restrictions and employee demands for hybrid and flexible workplaces, employers have had to re-think the conventional office model to fit the new normal of work. Failure to do so could leave businesses at the mercy of "The Great Resignation", which sees employees leaving for jobs that better meet their needs. Companies, as a result, must think about how to create a workplace model that is enticing to employees, prioritizes productivity, and creates a strong company culture.
In this presentation, Zach Dunn will share data that paints the picture of how return to office (RTO) strategies have played out globally, including which workplace models worked and which didn't throughout the year. Zach will share examples from Robin's data science team on how businesses can create a consistent employee experience for both in-office and remote workers to meet the new workplace standards employees are looking for.
Kevin Loos, COO, CrowdComfort (moderator)
Jeff Wachs, Assistant Director of Facility Operations, Northwestern Mutual
Nellie Hayat, Workplace Innovation Lead, Density
With the shift to more flexible work models, the experience of the office will be integral to ensuring collaboration, community and retention for employees. The question is what role the office play in the overall employee experience? What should organizations do to improve the occupant experience and how can we measure the impact of the office on employee collaboration, productivity and satisfaction?
Simon Davis, SVP of Workplace, Impec Group (moderator)
Felipe Pla, Technology Innovation Leader, Fidelity Real Estate Company
Kimberly Castle, Practice Director Workplace Technology Solutions, Buildingi
Minas Apelian, VP Internal and External Venturing, Saint-Gobain
Proptech innovation during the pandemic has increased tenfold, however, the big question is what does the future of technology look like in the office? How central is the employee to these technologies? What does this mean for data? How do we centralize and validate this data to make better decisions?
Michael Beckerman, CEO, CRETech
James Whalen, SVP - Chief Information and Technology Officer, Boston Properties
Patrick Mcgrath, EVP, CIO, Head of Client Technologies, Savills
Thijs van der Burgt, Managing Director, Global Corporate Solutions, HqO
As we move into 2022, the question is what should corporate occupiers expect from their landlords and real estate partners? What health & safety initiatives will become commonplace? What amenities will be differentiators? How will technology help to facilitate this? This and more on the future of corporate real estate.
