Please join ULI and Cushman & Wakefield as we examine the Future of the Office. Explore how the pandemic-induced work from home (WFH) experiment has altered perspectives on work, flexibility and the office, what the office will need to provide employees in a post-COVID-19 world and how vital it will be for organizations to intentionally lead through change management, communication and culture as they transition to a more agile workforce.
This session will be moderated by Rachel Casanova, Tri-State Lead, Workplace Innovation, Cushman & Wakefield.

One thing is clear: the purpose of the workplace is changing. There is strong consensus among leaders that declines in workplace culture, innovation and creativity are inevitablewhen people work entirely remotely. Hybrid working, where employees spend part of the week working in the office and the other part working from home or in a
third location, is expected to more than double going forward, while exclusively remote structures will remain the exception. In addition, the real estate industry is expected to become nimbler as tenants require greater flexibility in terms of space, amenities and leasing terms.
- Employees want more choice and freedom in where they work.
- There are impacts to remote working
In this session our panelists will address questions like: What purpose does the office serve in the future? How will that purpose impact how occupiers think about their portfolio footprints, location strategy and office layouts? What are the implications to office owners, corporate users, and employees? What are the implications to transportation infrastructure? Attendees will be given an opportunity to engage in the discussion.
