EY were asked by Property EU to review the hot topics impacting the real estate sector at a global level. EY commented the office is no longer seen as a fixed asset, but an overall workplace experience. EY also reference studies that show only a minority of companies have taken official steps towards planning the future of work. They say the ‘wait-and-see’ attitude needs to be overcome and that trends towards digital transformation have accelerated.
The office of the future needs to consider “technology, workplace design, sustainability and the overall employee experience. We need to upgrade technology and must consider the shift in employee needs”.
