Corporate Facilities Leaders Favor Activity-Based Workplaces

Seventy percent of respondents to a survey of corporate real estate and facilities (CRE&F) executives say activity-based workplace designs are expected to be incorporated into their businesses, and most anticipate a reduction in square footage per employee. This was among the many findings highlighted in a new report by CBRE, researched in partnership with CoreNet Global, titled, “Managing Global Corporate Real Estate and Facilities.”

CBRE’s Karen Ellzey says, “CRE&F has steadily evolved over the past several decades to become a widely recognized profession with the potential to make significant contributions to corporate performance.”

Other findings from the report include:
– Formal client relationship management (CRM) and business unit portfolio planning are established practices that will command increasing focus (as noted by 75% of respondents).
– 72% of survey respondents indicated that they are both building greater strategic capabilities to align with the business and driving greater collaboration with key functional partners, such as HR or IT, as part of current innovative / transformational activities.
