Just released is Jones Lang LaSalle’s inaugural Global Corporate Real Estate Survey, “undertaken in partnership with Thomson Reuters. This is the first global report designed to provide insight into the future path, challenges and opportunities facing CRE. With over 500 CRE executive respondents globally from 36 countries, this survey has captured data not previously presented in any of our research.

- Balancing the dual forces of growth and right-sizing. CRE organizations are exposed to complex targets, such as dealing with the contrary pressures of growth and right sizing.
- Progressing towards partnerships. CRE teams are mvoing towards more sophisticated partnership models.
- Reshaping CRE structures and skills. A new talent requirement is emerging, resulting from a tougher operational environment, forcing CRE leaders to rethink team structures and skills.
