Perspectives for Enterprises 2022
A new frontier for work awaits
- Maartje Smallenbroek
The world around us is changing at a fast pace. The opportunity for organisations to shape their future of work strategy has never been stronger and there is only upside and value for those who commit to their transformation.
The pandemic has changed employee priorities and expectations. First and foremost, people expect much greater flexibility and service from their places of work. Organisations are now beginning to understand that their transformation to more remote and hybrid workstyles will be a longer-term journey in the continued evolution of the future of work.
Shifting priorities and enabling the future of work
The amount of workforce back in the office varies by industry, but on a global level the picture is clear: hybrid is here to stay. To navigate the future of work, organisations will need to be agile, adapting to changing conditions both in the near term and beyond.
In our second edition of JLL’s Perspectives for Enterprises report we explore five future of work trends that will have a profound impact on tomorrow’s workplace:
- Making hybrid work
- War for Talent 2.0
- Regenerative workplace
- A flexible future
- Responsible real estate
Economic themes and predictions
As we look to the year ahead, there is a slight sense of déjà vu: The economic situation remains tied to the evolution of the pandemic; Covid remains rampant; and many of us face the renewed uncertainty of the re-imposition or tightening of restrictions. However, consumer and business sentiment have rebounded and stayed high as waves of outbreak have come and gone.
So what’s in store for 2022? JLL’s Perspectives for Enterprises report examines the key economic drivers that will shape our world in the coming year, including slowing growth, rising interest rates, inflation and an evolving labour market.
