Episode 10: Megan Mackinson and How to Make Your Office a Good Investment

Megan joined me to discuss one of the more pressing topics we see right now in commercial real estate - the future of the workplace.  That really manifests as an exploration of the thought process: So I think I need an office; but some people are going to stay home, some days, some in the office." 

Megan links the theoretic theory of the future of workplace to the real, actual planning and work that goes into deciding what to do with your office in 2020 and beyond.  

I learned so much talking Megan, and I love her perspective from working with +300 different companies (and counting) on exactly these questions.  Her knowledge and poise makes this one of my favorite interviews.

She sees about a 10% occupancy/utilization across the companies she is working with as of September 2020:

  • All about the future conversation / planning 
  • Mobility Profiles by Worker (slide # 4) :  https://www.linkedin.com/smart-links/AQGLpWRz4DJssg  
  • Outcomes of planning may be different, but the front end process is the same and the front end questions aren't changing.  Outcomes are around flexibility.
