Health & Wellbeing
Is this the latest fad, or a true shift in real estate and corporate dynamics?
To answer this question, we need to step back from real estate into wider 21st Century trends and demographics. Within this context, it is not surprising that people are beginning to question their work environments as much as their own, private parameters. In a world where your every step and meal is now trackable, the question is perhaps ‘why would you not want to improve your workspace as much as your home?’ , not least because most of us spend more time at work than at home.
Putting people first
A confluence of factors has brought this theme to the real estate sector: increased scientific evidence, changing employee expectations and a new generation of workers who are increasingly health conscious.
To respond, real estate practitioners will need to deploy a similar combination of evidence and experience: by integrating strategy and reporting across the business, including:
- Human Resources
- Building Design
- Facilities Management
- Workplace Design
