ACE’s group for the next generation of industry leaders, ACE Emerging Professionals, has released details of its upcoming major report, Future of the Workplace.
Through extensive research and expert interviews with a range of stakeholders, including emerging professionals from across the built environment sector, the report explores the changing perceptions and expectations of the upcoming generation with regard to their workplace.
The findings, which form part of ACE's Future of Consultancy workstream, will also be crucial reading for any business leader looking to create welcoming, productive, healthy, attractive and flexible work environments post-COVID.
The report will be launched online on 11 November at 12pm. The event will be hosted by the chair of ACE Emerging Professionals, Georgia Hughes of Arcadis, who will be joined by Mark Naysmith and Lesley Hume from WSP, Simon Innes of Goodson Associates and Martin Silvester of Arcadis. More guests will be announced soon.
Commenting on the report’s release, Georgia Hughes said: “With many business leaders currently exploring new and different ways of working post-COVID, our research will be invaluable to helping them create the flexible, safe and healthy working environments that people now expect.
“Not only will the research address the new normal we’re all facing, but it will explore some of the longer-term, structural issues too. Notably, how can we create a work environment that will attract and retain the emerging generation? Of course we won’t have all the answers, but we hope to add substantially to the debate with our new report.”
