What EY can do for you


The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated changes to the way many organizations conduct business. As we look to the future, the most successful companies will take action to reimagine the workplace, meet evolving employee expectations and reduce costs of operation. Emerging trends in technology, workplace design, hybrid work and collaboration models will provide the agility needed to help organizations transform their real estate portfolios as they reimagine the workplace.


Considerations for business leaders

  • How do you provide a healthy and productive work environment to improve employee well-being?
  • How can you drive greater efficiencies and reduce your total cost of occupancy?
  • How do you enhance collaboration and culture in a hybrid work environment, utilizing workplace strategies and technology enablement?
  • How do you reduce your carbon footprint and achieve environmental, social and governance (ESG) targets, while keeping up with changing compliance requirements?
  • How can you leverage digital workplace technology and smart building solutions to enhance the workplace?
