In today’s workplace landscape, the opinion of the worker counts for a lot. In fact, organisations are increasingly involving their staff in decisions that were once reserved for leadership. The workforce is largely made up of millennial workers who are used to having significant influence in the way they work, rather than being dictated to by archaic organisational structures.
As corporate property experts, BRM Projects looks at the role that property plays in retaining talent and its fundamental place in projecting future outcomes for organisations.
In the 1950s and 60s, there was a huge focus on the corporate workplace. Corporate office buildings were popping up in the world’s major cities and to a large extent, the purpose of these buildings remains the same today – to serve as symbols and enablers of the companies they housed. Where we see a significant shift is not in the role of the property, but the role of the people within it. It is this new focus on pleasing the worker that has resulted in some exciting new advancements in design, technology and commercial real estate.
Today, the property you choose for your organisation is expected to answer the needs of your workers and when engaging BRM Projects in property strategy and advisory services, our clients are shown various ways of including staff in some important decisions.
Some ways we factor your staff into our property advisory services are:
Holding on to key talent has never been more important for organisations. Younger workers are more likely to move on to the next job, if the above factors are not considered by their employer. Elements like sustainability and facilities like lounges, break out areas, parking and End Of Trip Facilities are starting to become the standard for workplaces so to hold on to key talent, landlords and tenants alike are scrambling to ensure their property provides more than the traditional corporate working environment.
