The future of office space and human resources

This meeting is intended to look at the workplace of the future from the point of view of real estate, HR and management. Case studies of best practice will be presented, as well as the latest trends from around the world.


The world of work is changing faster than at any time since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. The era of the office where workers come to their desks, each in individual rooms, and each desk has its own telephone, is coming to an end. A new generation of employees entering the labour market has entirely different expectations as to conditions in the workplace. In the war to attract and retain talent, creating the right ambience in the office becomes essential. Employers will increasingly have to consider the workplace environment in these terms, rather than merely worrying about price per square metre.

Aimed at HR managers and FM specialists, as well as real estate practitioners, the event will offer a big-picture overview of the way the market is likely to evolve.
