Business success lies in staying ahead of the curve and predicting the right step to take next for people, the planet, and profit. This 7th edition of the Top 10 Global CRE Trends report explores how firms can reinvent their corporate real estate strategies in response to ever-changing business priorities, a challenging operating landscape, and a volatile economic environment. The global COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be an accelerant of change and transformation for many organizations. Some of the ensuing changes were a long-time coming, such as the increased push towards a more sustainable, tech-infused world. Other shifts, like evolving working habits, had been bubbling farther below the surface, accelerated by the ongoing pandemic. Hybrid and remote work, climate change, digital applications, and sustainability are all trends discussed. Leverage intelligence and best practices from the partnership ecosystem are needed to co-create innovative solutions and achieve organizational objectives.
