Action plan for introducing coworking

“More companies are considering co-working as an extension to their real estate strategy—to build in business agility and to provide employees with more control to get productive work done.” 

– Grant Morrison, Head of Consulting, Asia Pacific, JLL

Top factors driving office location choice

The largest tech occupier category in key markets

“Office location is a key component for organisations in achieving portfolio optimisation and thus providing a meaningful contribution to business success. With real estate currently one of the largest controllable costs for firms, it is more important than ever to understand how real estate can be used as an advantage.” 

Jeremy Sheldon, Managing Director of Markets and Integrated Portfolio Services, JLL Asia Pacific

Smart building systems with interactive controls create a direct feedback loop between building occupants and the built environment, which is absent in legacy building systems. Offering employees the opportunity to leverage this feedback loop to optimize their comfort levels is an important step in creating a more productive workplace.
