Summary, etc.:
A fascinating and accessible guide to the effective management of corporate real estate--an underestimated element of business management which can have a dramatic impact upon employee satisfaction and organizational efficiency. In the current age of remote working and flexible work hours, why have most office spaces remained relatively unchanged for decades? In Where is My Office?, Chris Kane highlights the importance of workplace agility and innovative corporate real estate (CRE) thinking in ensuring the productivity and efficiency of any organization, while at the same time offering insights into the future of our work environments and the implications for CRE investors. The book assesses the major issues facing CRE sectors around the world - issues that leave businesses out of pocket and employees unhappy with the workspaces in which they are expected to spend a major part of their day. The author presents adaptable and actionable solutions to to these issues, emphasizing the need for interdepartmental collaboration and the implementation of new technology, all of which can bring about a holistic and adaptable solution to the challenges of workplace efficiency, which in turn can cut costs, minimize risks and increase productivity. Where is My Office? is an accessible guide for business leaders and HR professionals, providing an adaptable framework through which they can ensure that their approach to work-space management is aligned with the needs of their business and employees. Chris poses his ground-breaking 'Smart Value' formula which underpinned the success of his work at The Walt Disney Company and the BBC, and which can be adapted to enact meaningful and lasting organizational change in any business. -- Provided by publisher.
