That’s a Wrap!

Thank you to everyone who supported JLL throughout the 2014 CoreNet Global Asia Pacific Summit in Singapore. We were very excited to showcase JLL’s new branding to the CRE community and had an overwhelmingly positive response from over 600 clients and summit delegates in attendance.

Those who visited the JLL booth were also able to participate in our Productivity Putting, where delegates were encouraged to try their golf swing and poll on whether their organization is measuring workplace productivity.

Creating a culture of WOW!

 Posted by: Peter Merrett, Director of Workplace Experience Services, Asia Pacific
What is the first thing that you switch on in the morning when you arrive at work? Wouldn’t it be great if the answer was your people!

The experience of our customers and employees continues to be a hot topic for CRE executives. We all know that great customer service doesn’t generally come as a one size fits all. There are many different ways to address the issues.

JLL was thrilled to present a fun session around employee and customer experience, with some fascinating insights shared from the world of hotels and hospitality and also from Rudy Dimayacyac of P&G and Hayden Perkin of Google. Our session focused on creating a workplace that is not only happy and gives employees a sense of pride and purpose, but also looks at building an environment that models the organisation’s culture.

We engaged the audience with “Would You Rather, Or” a fun and interactive game to help gauge exactly how they felt about the workplace!












Offices 2020 Asia Pacific – Prepare for the changing trends today!

Posted by: Alex Colpaert, Corporate Research, Jones Lang LaSalle Asia Pacific

Much has been written about the tremendous growth of some Asia Pacific cities over the last few decades. The knock on effect on real estate is often visualized by the famous pictures of the transformation of the Pudong district in Shanghai, where low-rise factories made place for a futuristic office district in the space of two decades.  Looking ahead, which cities will see the greatest growth and what specific factors will drive or inhibit growth?  More importantly, what does this mean for corporate occupiers looking to expand their footprint across Asia Pacific?

JLL’s Offices 2020 session at CoreNet will facilitate a deep dive into some of these questions. The Offices 2020 campaign paints a big-picture outlook for six major cities in Asia Pacific, tackling fundamental issues (identified by our clients themselves) that will shape the future of offices in the next decade. It examines, for example, what will drive growth, where tomorrow’s office hotspots will be and how sustainability will continue to climb the real estate and corporate agenda.

Essentially, Offices 2020 is about helping landlords and occupiers prepare for change by identifying key issues and starting the conversation now to outperform in the future.

Productivity improvement: The standout strategic priority from the C-suite

JLL kicked off the CoreNet Global Asia-Pacific Summit in Singapore with a premiere of our productivity video, highlighting our capabilities in delivering productivity improvements across real estate portfolios. The theme of productivity is also echoed throughout the Summit through our exhibition space and educational sessions.

Check out JLL’s productivity video below.

A strategic set of demands is gaining significance, such as driving improved workplace and worker productivity. These fresh demands apply further pressure to CRE teams and expose structural flaws that jeopardize their future contribution and position.
According to JLL’s Global Corporate Real Estate Trends 2013 report, 68% those surveyed see increased strategic demand from the C-suite and senior leadership to improve the productivity of the real estate portfolio.
