How many office owners out there expect their buildings to revert back completely to what they were like in 2019? The answer is probably not many. The coronavirus outbreak has transformed workplaces, but instead of precipitating a universal pivot towards entirely remote work, it instead brought a new emphasis on greater workplace flexibility. This flexibility, though, requires the right tech tools to be successful.
Turning traditional offices into flexible ones often requires landlords to adjust their thinking and add new competencies that may be difficult to master. The solution for many will be to adopt technologies and tools that supplement their core real estate skill set and allow them to focus on doing what they do best. But where to begin? What opportunities and challenges emerge when integrating tech into a flex space operation?
