Overview: The pandemic-induced work-from-home experiment has altered perspectives on work, flexibility and the office. When COVID-19 is no longer a lingering health concern, workers will not be expected to come into the office for tasks that can be done from anywhere. What purpose does the office serve in the future and how will that purpose impact the way occupiers think about their portfolio footprints, location strategy and office layouts? What are the implications of the changing nature of the office on owners, corporate users and civic leaders? How much work-from-home penetration should we expect and what are the variables that impact it? This webinar will explore potential outcomes of the future of the office and what it means for urban districts regarding office occupancy and the street life urban place management organizations oversee.
The research featured in this webinar was conducted by Cushman and Wakefield and the Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis at The George Washington University School of Business.
