In this episode of Real Estate for Breakfast, Antonia Cardone, Americas Lead of Total Workplace for Cushman & Wakefield, joins Phil to discuss the return to work following the COVID-19 pandemic and stay-at-home restrictions. Cushman & Wakefield has helped numerous businesses return to work in China and across Asia, and Antonia brings that experience and knowledge to this discussion. Antonia and Phil discuss how businesses can prepare now to return to work in the future and think about what the future at work will be like and what we know now about people working from home. They discuss the “6 Feet Office” and other considerations as we go back to our offices, including maintaining social distance, minimizing touch points and managing any contamination. The return to work will be gradual and businesses can prepare the building, workforce and organization now for that transition. In the long run, technology will be key. The role of the office and how we create community and culture will change and evolve.
