Over the last six years we have captured the voice of the corporate real estate (CRE) community and provided powerful insights into the current status and future direction of the industry through our biennial report on global CRE trends. This report summarizes the global aggregated findings of JLL’s third Global Corporate Real Estate Survey. In this latest edition, 540 CRE executives, from more than 350 companies and 36 countries, once again offer their perspectives.
- Theme 1: Centralization: CRE teams are becoming increasingly centralized and global, being more formally connected to the C-suite and better empowered to drive change.
- Theme 2: Integration: Interaction and integration with other business functions and stakeholders is a growing need, but it is a strong feature of only a few CRE teams.
- Theme 3: Expectation: Demand to deliver across a range of tactical and strategic activity continues to intensify, challenging the composition and skills of CRE teams and creating a ‘pressure cooker’ of expectations.
- Theme 4: Outsourcing: RE teams are using outsourced service providers across more geographies and industry sectors; but many are still missing the opportunity to drive strategic, long-term value through outsourcing partnerships.
