The great return to office

Tay Huey Ying, Head of Research, Singapore

After two years of working from home and the growing emphasis on health and well-being, employees are realigning their work priorities and preferences. How will evolving employee sentiment impact future of work and workplace strategies, and at what costs are organisations welcoming them back to their offices?

The great divide on the right workforce model (Panel discussion)

Moderated by Chris Archibold, Country Head, Singapore

Which model works for your organisation – office, hybrid, or remote working?

We are seeing contrasting approaches to workplace strategies as organisations reconfigure their workforce models. Selecting the right model for your organisation involves navigating complex trade-offs between flexibility and structure, real estate and culture.

We share insights from case studies of industry leaders who have adopted distinctive strategies and explore how they are building parity between employee expectations alongside operational practices that positively impact the revenue stream.

The great transformation of workplace experience (Panel discussion)

Moderated by Mireille Wan, Senior Director, JLL

Encouraging employees back to offices is not only about supporting flexibility, but also offering them a variety of spaces and amenities that are inclusive, sustainable, and beneficial to their well-being. Employers have a new responsibility to actively support the evolving workplace needs of their people.

We look at what is trending in the landlord, investor and occupier realms to enhance high levels of collaboration, innovation and engagement amongst employees, and in the communities. Join us as we discuss current and emerging trends in which the experience of a transformed workplace can be taken to the next level.
