ECIA Announces Webinar on The Future of Work: Post-Pandemic Trends in Office Space

ATLANTA – ECIA will host a webinar on the future of work, which will include a presentation by Brad Wilner and Manny Fitzgerald of commercial real estate services firm CRBE. The global pandemic has fundamentally altered how and where people need to be physically to be productive. As the world has changed, so too has the future of the workplace. The work from home experiment turned out to be more successful than anyone thought and cultural norms around the importance of working in the office have changed.

Organizations are no longer just questioning WHEN their employees will return to the office, but WHO will return and at what frequency. This determination is front of mind for all organizations and begs the question on how much and what kind of space will be needed in the future to accommodate a hybrid work environment.

“CBRE provided an insightful presentation to a recent NAM (National Association of Manufacturing) meeting,” explained David Loftus, ECIA President and CEO. “We felt it important to bring this valuable information to our membership.”

With more than 100,000 professionals in over 100 countries, CBRE is a global leader in commercial real estate services and investment. Brad Wilner is an advisory and transaction professional within CBRE’s occupier services group. Manny Fitzgerald is Executive Vice President at CBRE and National Leader of CBRE's Nonprofit Practice Group. Both are based in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office.
