ATLANTA (July 14, 2016) — The corporate real estate (CRE) profession will be influenced, disrupted and transformed in the years ahead by a powerful combination of forces that are re-shaping business strategy and operations, consumer preferences, and how and where people want to live and work, according to a new report released today by CoreNet Global. CoreNet Global is the leading global professional association for corporate real estate and workplace executives, service providers and economic developers.
"The Bigger Picture: The Future of Corporate Real Estate," draws on the expertise of more than 30 thought leaders to provide crucial insights from multiple perspectives beyond CRE: technology and the internet of things; risk mitigation; cyber security; environment, energy and sustainability; corporate social responsibility; the global economy; people, talent, wellbeing; and the future of cities. The report connects these dots to draw a forward-looking picture of the dynamic business environment in which CRE must deliver value – a world that is changing rapidly, more interconnected than ever before, constantly disrupted by technological innovation, and replete with both risks and opportunities.
Among the key findings in the report:
"Now, more than ever, it is crucial that corporate real estate professionals become not only students of the business, but students of the world and how it is changing," said Angela Cain, CEO of CoreNet Global. "That is the purpose of our new report: to place the future of CRE in the context of the bigger picture."
Several CoreNet Global Gold Strategic Partners contributed to the report: CBRE, Deloitte, ISS, JLL, Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, Sodexo and Steelcase.
