    ULI Greece & Cyprus is pleased to invite you to the launch of the Future of Work 2020 report. The event will take place virtually on Tuesday, 19 January 2021 at 17:00 - 18:00 EET. 
     
    In preparation of the Future of Work 2020: A global real estate players’ point of view report, the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and EY surveyed 555 real estate professionals worldwide. The broad range of respondents included investors, developers, architects, planners and other service providers. The research focused on a time horizon beyond the immediate short-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the first global report to look at the impact of the future of work on real estate and cities over the next three to five years foresees a strong focus on flexibility, demanded by both workers and corporates - not only relating to the work activity but also space and location. This increased flexibility is likely to lead to a flight to quality over quantity of office space and a move towards flexible and tailormade leasing models.
