In the wake of the pandemic, many professionals want flexible working arrangements – and unless public bodies can offer them, they’ll find it difficult to attract the most talented and skilled employees. Indeed, flexible working can expand the labour markets available to employers: people are often willing to take jobs further from home if they aren’t required to be in the office every day.

This has implications for public bodies’ property assets and strategies: many may require less office space, with fewer desks and more meeting and collaboration spaces. This shift also comes after nearly a decade of the One Public Estate programme, which has been focused on making more efficient use of public sector property to both encourage collaboration and free up surplus land for housing.

This session will look at:

  • The benefits from office colocation – how can it improve local public services?
  • The savings that can be unlocked by better use of public sector buildings
  • How can public sector organisations plan now for the hybrid working future?
