The ‘Next Normal’ is here – leading organisations are reflecting on the role of the workplace and their ability to be agile, adaptable and resilient. It is time to (re)imagine the future of work and real estate.


A guide to (re)entry of the workplace

For a brief moment, the world hit pause. We collectively assessed the true impact of a global pandemic, all while adjusting to a new way of life, in an instant.

Businesses will not go back to the way we knew before the pandemic. They will use this crisis to reinvent themselves to be more resilient, adapting their operational models to the 'next normal.' Operational resilience in the face of a pandemic must go beyond just reopening workspaces. Prepare to gradually re-enter, as the journey ahead will be multi-phased.

Re-entry starts with a firm understanding of the government mandates inclusive of national, state and local guidelines and requirements.

Our contribution to society in unprecedented times

At JLL we have always had a strong commitment to contributing positively to society and we continue to take this responsibility very seriously. With the COVID-19 crisis deepening, helping our clients and our communities through these challenging times is core to our commitment to shape the future of real estate for a better world. 

There has never been a more important time for us to all pull together, and we intend to play our part in responding with practical solutions.

Our five-point UK engagement plan to step up our response focuses on: Our people, Our clients, NHS, public and voluntary sectors, Our charity partner and Our suppliers.

By addressing the individual needs of these audiences, we believe we can make a collective effort that will have a lasting positive impact.
