The big shift in office space demand has begun. That’s the premise behind a webinar from Deloitte & Touche that explores alternative workplace strategies.

Bob O’Brien, a partner at Deloitte & Touche, hosted the webinar, which offers new insights into what could be a permanent change in the real estate market for office space.

Deloitte points out that employers have been exploring alternative workplace strategies, which can have a dramatic impact on the demand for office space, for more than 20 years. The virtual office is part and parcel of this shift. Virtual offices allow mobile workers to stay tapped into the parent office no matter where they go without missing a beat.

Virtual offices have been a popular alternative to traditional office space for many years, but virtual office space gained major momentum during the Great Recession. Deloitte asked an important question: As the economy improves, will alternative workplace strategies continue to reshape real estate markets?

The webinar discusses:

•    Changing office space demands and the business factors behind the surge in alternative workplace strategies, including people strategies, changing space standards, economics, technology, and sustainability.

•    Types of properties that align with the new demands of alternative workplace strategies.

•    Possible implications for lessors and lessees, both near-term and in the future.
