Past pandemics have always accelerated social and economic change, forcing societies to adapt to their present, and reimagine their future. Major plagues, including the Spanish Flu of 1918, forced organizations to adapt and innovate in response to a significantly altered labor structure.

COVID-19 raises the fundamental question, how and where should “work” be delivered in the future? The COVID-19 driven changes in economy, workforce, production techniques and organizations will shape long-term impacts on how and where Real Estate is used. COVID-19 has had an immediate impact, as stay at home measures have resulted in most offices, retail units, leisure and sporting facilities standing empty.

More than ever, the crisis is forcing organisations to make nimble shifts from physical to virtual work styles. In the first half of 2020, many organisations realized that not only can they operate within these new modes, but they can also compete for significant new market share. The pandemic has been an “opportunity to reimagine” how the company works.

This white paper by Cushman Wakefield focuses on the potential long-term consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on office accommodation. The paper reviews how work and technology could change Workplace demand, as well as impact location strategies, to predict where and what work will happen and the role of the physical workplace in the next 5 to 15 years.
