It’s always been one of CoreNet Global’s core objectives to raise the visibility not only of the association, but of the corporate real estate profession. This week, furthering that aim, The Wall Street Journal cited data from a research study that we completed with CBRE on the use of personal desks.

The workplace, it seems, is in a constant state of change. And while some changes are easily accepted, others – like unassigned seating – might take some getting used to. But stories like these explain the changes in context and use our numbers to help illuminate the trends. The story shows how several companies are adapting to current trends, not only with CoreNet Global data, but by interviewing several of our members.

And it demonstrates that corporate real estate is a profession, one that is providing key strategic input into overall corporate planning.
