A View on the Global Workplace

COVID-19 has been the catalyst for the single largest workplace experiment the world has ever known.

It proved to executives worldwide that flexible work is here to stay, making many organizations rethink a new way of working and, specifically, assess “the purpose and power of place.”

Join us as Kate shares her global perspective based upon data from two international surveys from Colliers, global engagements, and insights from the Workplace Evolutionaries, the largest workplace community in the world. In this highly-interactive session, we will hear about the regional nuances, emerging best practices and, most importantly, understand what organizations are doing to leverage the “silver linings” from the past year to build bold strategies that will forever change the way they work.

Key Takeaways:

  • Regional snapshots from around the globe
