Workplace Expert helps businesses across the world plan the future of their workplaces
Leading diversified professional services and investment management company Colliers International announced the launch of a new online tool entitled Workplace Expert. Developed in response to changing work practices, the tool helps businesses take the first steps in shaping their future workplace strategy and creating an optimal work environment for their organization and people.
Eriks Bergmans, Partner and Head of Agency at Colliers added: “We recognize that data insights delivered through world-class technology play a great role, in assisting our clients to make the best decisions and build strategic plans, as well as maximize the value of their property. We are very excited to introduce this tool to assist businesses with the next evolution of their workplace.”
Workplace Expert recommends different office environments and configurations based on responses to questions about a business’ goals, working patterns and drivers behind their brand and operating culture. The tool is fueled by extensive benchmarking data, insights from Colliers’ global surveys during the COVID-19 pandemic and emerging market trends.
“Now, more than ever, the office is being acknowledged not just as a pure cost asset, but as a space with a vital role in connecting and empowering an organization’s people to operate at their best in the next evolution of workplace experiences,” said JanJaap Boogaard, Head of Workplace Advisory | EMEA and lead tool developer, alongside the global Colliers Workplace Advisory team. “Creating the right core work environment that is responsive to current challenges and future needs will be crucial for attracting and retaining talent, as well as enabling employees to perform and collaborate.”
