Where Is My Office? by Chris Kane; Eugenia AnastassiouAn examination of the future of our workspaces and how the pandemic will continue to shape how and where we work. In the era of WFH, hybrid working and flexible hours, going to the office is no longer what it used to be. Many businesses and organizations, as well as the entire commercial real estate sector, are struggling to address their new workplace dilemmas in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the rise of diverse working practices and new technological innovations, the traditional office space no longer serves the needs of the workforce. And with increasing numbers of staff now comfortable with a degree of working from home, how can companies assess their longer-term workspace needs? This new follow-up edition of Where Is My Office?, fully revised and updated to reflect the true impact of the pandemic on the workplace, highlights some of the bold new frameworks and practical considerations for business leaders, workplace practitioners and those involved in commercial real estate as they navigate the complex post-pandemic working landscape. Authors Chris Kane and Eugenia Anastassiou draw upon their extensive knowledge and experience to investigate the new-found significance of innovative corporate real estate thinking in modern workplaces. Where is My Office?: The Post-Pandemic Edition is a must-read for any business leader or senior manager looking to revitalize their workplace in a post-pandemic environment, and to develop a greater understanding of the beneficial impacts that creative workplace strategies that harness the relationship between people, place, technology, and the environment can have upon their organization's success.
