Hybrid Working, 10 Trends shaping RE & FM in 2022, and the Future of Work

On again. Off again. On again. Off again. On again. 2021 was another year of uncertainty, with none of us really knowing which way to turn. Not least for those in the real estate and facility management world, as they dealt with the effects of continued quarantines and shutdowns on the built environment and the workforce. We learned to adapt fast – and then adapt all over again as the world continued to brace itself against Covid. But, just like you, Planon kept going. And we continued to support our customers as they introduced new ways to manage their buildings, workspaces, and assets, all while keeping their workforce safe and productive.

But the pandemic stimulated innovation, both in product and in process. We had important conversations with our customers around best practices for hybrid working, health & safety initiatives, and how to choose the right technologies to enable the Future of Work – conversations that previously may not have been top of the agenda, but that are continuing in 2022 with renewed enthusiasm.

So – in case you missed it! Here’s a roundup of our best content and the hottest topics from 2021 to help you jumpstart your strategies around the workplace in 2022.
