WORLD Investment set to rise in home office tech

Technology
As many as 88 pct of EMEA occupiers intend to invest more in technology designed specifically to aid home working, according to CBRE’s 2020 EMEA Occupier Flash Survey.

With 92 pct of those surveyed expecting the trend for remote working to intensify, investment in home office systems has moved up the agenda. Contact-free systems for buildings are expected to be adopted by 45 pct of those surveyed, while 41 pct expressed an increased interest in buildings with Well or sustainable features.

“Amidst the disruption triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic, occupiers’ emphasis on technological investment persists. While the focus is now on supporting remote working and using tech to enable social distancing and enhanced hygiene measures, in the long term we expect the thinking behind pre-Covid plans to use tech to improve employee experience to be re-incorporated in new business strategies.
Richard Holberton, the EMEA head of occupier research at CBRE
